Upside to Specter's switch: blocking Souter's replacement.

Go over to Hot Air to see the explanation in detail but it comes down to the Senate Judiciary committee needs one minority vote to close debate on a judicial nominee. Before Specter switched that probably would have been him. Without Specter here are the Republicans who are left on the committee:

Orrin Hatch
Chuck Grassley
Jon Kyl
Jeff Sessions
Lindsey Graham
John Cornyn
Tom Coburn.

I don't think even Grahamnesty would be so brazen as to cut a deal with the Dems when it comes to the Supreme Court. Conservatives would issue a fatwa against him if he did.

So the traitor seems to have done us a favor. Thanks.
