Pennsylvania's senior U.S. Senator Arlen Specter says the Republican Party has a "little healing" to do at its convention in St. Paul, Minnesota. Specter told DUQ that the whole party has to pull together but in order for John McCain to win, the Republicans must appeal to independents and Democrats. Specter says he has high regard for Democratic Presidential nominee Barrack Obama whom he calls "a phenomenon as an orator and campaigner" but he says it comes down to McCain's experience. Specter says both McCain and Obama have a shot at winning Pennsylvania and he believes the four suburban counties around Philadelphia could be key to a McCain victory in Pennsylvania.
