The Lieberproblem


It will be interesting to see where the Democratic Presidential wannabees line-up in what will become the "Lieberproblem." With Lieberman sure to run as an independent, who the Democrat Presidential contenders side with will be very telling. We already know that Kerry and Feingold will side with Lamont. They are taking the far left anti war, Bush is the devil tack. But what about Hillary, Biden, Edwards, Travelin Tommy, Warner etc.. Do they stay out of it all together? Do they actively campaign for one or the other. An early tactical decision for the D's.

Feel free to comment about any other ramifications of the Lamont victory last night.

Edwards was the first national Dem leader to call and congratulate Lamont. HillPAC is supposedly giving Lamont $5k. Evan Bayh has called and spoke with Lamont, giving him his support. DCCC and DSCC are behind him, as is the DNC. Sens. Boxer, Kennedy, and Obama have also called and congratulated Lamont. Lamont is the nominee and the Democratic Party will support him. The only two Sens. as of right now vocally supporting Lieberman are Salazar and Inoyue.

No wonder, it's the only way they can all cover their own gutless votes for the war. That and spewing that bullshit about how "they supported it before they opposed it because those awful Republicans messed up a perfectly good war."

Ridiculous.

Not a good year to be Lieberman or Chafee and at odds with your party.
