He who shall not be named

Our friends at MSNBC’s First Read have an amusing way of describing the 2010 Pennsylvania Senate race in today’s edition:

With a lot of speculation on the Democratic side about possible challengers to Sen. Arlen Specter in 2010, don't forget this possibility: "Former Rep. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) [president of the Club for Growth], whom Specter defeated by less than two percentage points in 2004, said he hasn't ruled out a 2010 rematch, but has no timetable for a decision.

Of course, the primary source of speculation centers around MSNBC’s own Chris Matthews, who has been coy about whether he intends to challenge Specter in two years. It will be interesting to see how the Peacock Network covers the buzz surrounding his potential candidacy in the future.
