Specter and Alito
Specter's support for Alito could be one of the main reasons Alito was picked by President Bush. Alito currently sits on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, in Specter's home state. Various news reports indicate that Specter is familiar with Alito and that he respects Alito as an impartial jurist.
By picking Alito, the Administration satisfied the conservative base and Specter. That is no small feat.
