Former U.S. Congressman and retired Navy vice admiral Joe Sestak joins “Starting Point” Monday to talk about his longtime friend and rival Arlen Specter who passed away on Sunday.
“[Specter] was a fighter in his own personal life, and out here on the campaign, but he was never deterred from doing what his legacy really is. And in my mind, it’s the fierce advocacy for the national institute of health that affected so many families across America including mine,” Sestak argues. “There aren’t going to be many like him. But I sure hope they look towards him as a pragmatist, a centrist, somebody who was willing to do a compromise, but a principled compromise, stand up to his own party, to do what was needed.”
