    They're leaving it to Reid b/c he's willing to be burned in effigy at places like this while Clinton and Obama keep their hands clean.

    Hope I'm wrong.

        Includes at least six (eight including replacements for the Pres and VP?) new members with no skin in the game who would be nuts to cross Reid on this. Plus the "Joe is a GREAT guy to talk to" crowd, and there are lots of people in DC who like Lieberman on personal grounds from what I can tell. Plus the folks who will follow along so as not to embarrass Reid.

        It's in the bag sadly IMHO.
