On Sunday, dozens of members of Congress mourned the loss of long-time former Sen. Arlen Specter, of Pennsylvania, whose 30-year career included changing parties twice and authoring the "magic bullet" theory in the death of President Kennedy. Specter, 82, died Sunday morning at his Philadelphia home.

The tweets rolled in from both sides of the aisle. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., had this to say: ""America is better today because of Arlen Specter. He will be dearly missed."
