Arlen Specter Says Farewell To Pa

12.27.10 | Sarah Harnisch

  Outgoing Senator Arlen Specter said Sunday he's leaving office with few regrets. Pennysylvania's longest-serving senator wrapped up his final days on the job last week. He said he'll be writing a book, teaching a University of Pennsylvania class on Supreme Court confirmation hearings, and possibly practicing law. The 80 year old former Philadelphia District Attorney lost his bid for a 6th senate term. He goes out with a list of unfinished business, but says he has few personal regrets... and does not feel bad about switching from the Republican to Democratic party.
