    I think we're okay in that dept.  I really think Blumenthal is waiting for that to open up.  Plus DeLauro and/or Larson might be swayed into running for an open seat.

    Shays is finished.  he had some appeal in the 4th only because there are alot of die hard fiscal cons down here.  When he started embracing the neocons talking points alot of them were dismayed and turned away.  Himes was the perfect candidate because he is from Greenwich.

    In 2012, what has to be done is get that sore loser law on the books.  That way if Joe decides to run as a Dem again we can primary him out and he won't come back like a freaking zombie.  If he runs as an indie, there is always the possibility of a rematch.  Joe's name is mud in CT.  I doubt he'll get as many Dems and indies voting for him again and with a somewhat more credible republican candidate running he has not shot.

    •  Joe as Indy could equal GOP win (0+ / 0-)

      Can't count on the GOP running such as weak candidate as Derby mayor Schlesinger in 2012.

      There's no way Lierberman will win the Democratic primary, and no way he wins if he runs as an Indy.

      But he could siphon off enough D votes to let a high-profile republican pull off an upset.
