“So who’s going to tell Joe that he could very easily lose come November? Who’s going to tell him that Ned might actually be good for the Democratic Party?”

Well, gee, Susan – since the apparent reason Joe Lieberman lost the primary is because of his stance on the War on Terror, I would say that after this morning’s events, Senator Lieberman is in pretty good shape.
And let’s see, Susan, since I can count and you apparently cannot – Senator Lieberman received 48% of the primary vote among Democrats. Care to hazard a guess, Susan, as to how many thoroughly furious Republicans there are in Connecticut who fully intend to vote for Senator Lieberman also?
No, Susan, just as you did when you ran Michael Dukakis’ campaign for president (And how is it that you are considered an “expert” on politics after THAT debacle?), you are completely misreading the intent and will of the American people. We don’t like defeatist cowards – which means that lately, we don’t much like Democrats. And I very much suspect that the voters of Connecticut are rightly going to be angered (if they are not already there) by out-of-state moonbats telling them how to vote!
My prediction? Senator Joseph Lieberman will return to the Senate as an Independent with an overwhelming majority of Connecticut voters sending him there. And in the process of this particular re-election campaign, he will have learned one valuable lesson – never trust the modern Democratic Party.
