Senator Arlen Spector Dies

He was one of a kind, a walking contradiction who could infuriate his colleagues one day and earn their admiration the next. He was brilliant, irascible, dignified and coarse, alternately a rabid partisan — ask Anita Hill — and an aisle-crossing defector — ask Robert Bork — who cast big votes boosting presidents from both parties during his 30-year Senate tenure. Known for his combative style, he was, above all maddeningly unpredictable, unafraid to anger a president or an entire party.
