    today:

    PBS's News Hour had a lengthy piece on the Lamont-Lieberman primary fight last night, and I watched Senator Lieberman say on camera that one of the "problems" if Ned Lamont wins the nomination for Senator from Connecticut is that "in Washington Lamont would be very polarizing."

    80% of Democrats think the Iraq war was a mistake, and Lamont is in synch with them. So to whom would Lamont be polarizing? To the Republicans? I guess so.

    Joe wants to keep the Republicans from having their feathers ruffled.

    As RJ Eskow writes in his tongue-in-cheek rebuttal to the idea Lieberman folks and various pundits have been pushing that Ned Lamont is somehow radical, "If Lamont wins, your new Senatorial candidate will have the same wacky, crazy-leftist opinion of the war in Iraq as ... Chuck Hagel."
