  •  The last thing Reid needs right now? (7+ / 0-)

    Harry Reid will be under intense pressure to immediately strip Lieberman of his committee assignments. Those are reserved for Democrats and loyal allies (e.g. Jeffords or Sanders). Let the Republicans give their committee seats to their favorite Democrat. That's the last thing Reid needs right now, but it'll happen if Lieberman stays in the race.

    Oh for pete sake, if he loses strip him clean. Congress is on vacation during August. After September, they're campaigning.  They're not going to accomplish anything meaningful for the rest of the year.

    •  Caution (0+ / 0-)

      What happens if we end up with a senate which is 50 Democrats, 49 Republicans, and a victorious Joe Lieberman?  Does Reid really want to burn all the bridges there?  Lieberman deserves to be made an example of, but Reid is going to get a lot of flak if the Senate stays in the hands of the GOP because Joe decides to caucus with the other side, and he'd better take that into account before acting.
