    has always been a conservative Dem and was in no way a "secure" Senate vote for hardline Dem initiatives.

    No disrespect to Cleland, I admire him greatly for his support of Kerry against the Swift Boat Cockknockers, but ideologically he's far closer to Lieberman than Lamont.

      And Cleland represented Georgia, not exactly a blue state like Connecticut.
      Senators from very red states, in order to keep the seat for a Democrat, often do have to cast some conservative votes. But Lieberman does not have to be a Dem Basher, Bush lovin, conservative Democrat.

      Cleland never bashed other Democrats and neither have many other Conservative Dems, there is a huge difference I think between Cleland, Nelson of Nebraska, and Jomentum. Sean Hannity calls Joe his favorite Democrat and Joe loves to kiss up to Bush and Fox News, and wingers. I see few other Democrats doing that.

      Carry the battle to them. Don't let them bring it to you. Put them on the defensive and don't ever apologize for anything. - Harry S. Truman
