    should be treated accordingly.  

    I have seen him for a long time as a moderate Republican.  I don't expect him to be any better than he has been after being elected with Republican money and voters.

    He's Senator of Connecticut for the next six years.  I'm not sure there is a fold I could welcome him back to, even if I were so inclined.  

    What Lamont's run did, I think, was to further expose him as not a Democrat.  

    If he votes in the caucus, Reid will treat him as a Dem.  There likely will be little difference in his behavior from how he was in 2005.   I'm glad he helps make the Dems a majority.  

    If I had lived in Connecticut, I would have voted for Weiker in 1988 when Lieberman first ran.  He always has been conservative for a Dem.

    It's a shame the majority in Conn. chose to reelect him.
