Lieberman Goes Down

Unfortunately for the Democratic party, the Democrats in Connecticut decided not to renominate Joe for the Senate. This is very disheartening to me. He was a great leader in the party, and while no one ever agrees with any politician all of the time, I agreed with him most of the time. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out if Lieberman runs as an independent. I think he has a substantial chance of winning over both the Republican and Democrat. If the Republican ends up winning, the Dems have just blown a big hole in both their feet.

Obviously I approach this from the other side of the political divide, but I think the last two elections could have easily produced a Democratic President named Lieberman.

This does not help the Dems push a "large tent" agenda at all.
