With Specter joining the Democratic Party, Todd is basically arguing:

The GOP better come up with a story about how they can be considered a national party when they can’t keep a moderate Republican like Specter in the party. This was a survival decision by Specter because he has been chased out of the party by rank and file Republicans.

What could the GOP’s national survival strategy look like? Oh I don’t know, let’s try a sane immigration policy, for starters.

Stay tuned for more on Specter’s immigration stance later today.
