  •  Of course he'll retire in 2012... (5+ / 0-)

    ...Lieberman's "Marvelous Mccain!" act is in recognition that a McCain presidency is the only way for him to keep a job with the dignity he feels he deserves. Sure he'll still be in the Senate if/when Obama wins, but the numbers in the Senate will mean he'll be tossed out of his chairmanship. And Holy Joe doesn't want to be without a pulpit. Under such circumstances I can't imagine him, in 2012, not quitting the Senate and trying to pull an Al Gore on some topic or another.

        Very strategic, and a likely additional Senate seat for the dems.  The drawback is that he would still be relevant.  Hmmm...

          as partners on anything, and especially not on the future of the Middle East.  Lieberman wants more wars and he also wants vouchers so the federal government can pay the bill for anyone who sends their children to a religious school.  That's one way to continue segregation and get more students for his sons' private schools.

        I'm not sure Senator Rob Simmons--or maybe, ugh, Senator Chris Shays--would be any better or less annoying than Joe.
