Josh is right that Arlen's cocky. Some of that is his personality. Some of that is the mental disorder that generally sets in after being a senator for a few decades. The other thing is that he's been remarkably successful at doing what he wants while engaging in enough bullshit to con the Philadelphia Inquirer editorial board every 6 in years into believing his "moderate" bullshit.

The only way to get him to do the right thing is to have a credible primary challenger in the wings, whether that's Specter Sestak or someone else.
