    ...the better off we will all be.

    Sorry, Hillary, but Joe Lieberman has a better shot than you do.  And Lieberman damn near single-handedly kept Gore's numbers down low enough for Bush to win by stealing Florida.

    •  That's really not true... (1+ / 0-)

      Let me say upfront that I'm no Lieberman fan, but he increased turn out in the Jewish vote in South Florida  and made the state incredibly in play for Gore (and had it not been for some butterfly ballots he would've been President). You can compare the drop off in FL with Kerry's election.

    •  I don't think so... (0+ / 0-)

      Holy Joe hadn't gone totally insane by then.  He definitely didn't help Gore, but I don't think he hurt him -- especially in a state with a high Jewish population like Florida.  (That wasn't intended in any anti-Semitic way; I just think that Jewish voters might've been more "fired up" by Lieberman just like my Irish grandparents were enthusiastic about JFK.)

      -2.75, -3.90 -- Please don't eat the moderates.
