I like this idea:
After his speech yesterday, a CNN correspondent asked Craig if he stood by his claim of innocence. “Absolutely,” he said, adding: “We’ll be fighting this like hell.”
At first blush, this sounded a bit like O.J. vowing to catch the real killer, but Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) indicated this morning he’d actually like to see Craig clear his name, withdraw his guilty plea — and stay in the Senate.
Is a more just solution? Check. Pisses off the national and Idaho GOPs? Check. Sets the stage for a bloody primary contest in 2008? Check. Makes it easy for former Rep. Larry LaRocco or any other Democratic candidate to beat the damaged goods that would emerge from such a primary? Oh, such a check.
