  •  Lieberman truly (1+ / 0-)

    does not have a party unless he registers as a Republican and runs as a Republican.  I think he screwed himself for future runs.  The Independants won't endorse him, nor the Greens, nor the Working Families Party.

    •  GC, is it true we're reinstating 95 polls? (0+ / 0-)

      GOP supported their standard bearer and all they got was this lousy minority status.

    •  If Lieberman ran on the Democratic ticket, (0+ / 0-)

      the Democratic Party in Connecticut would suffer a terrible blow. I really don't think it's possible for Lieberman to run as a Democrat after what he did in the presidential election.  If he runs as an Independent, the GOP will run a real Republican and his candidacy could cost the Democratic Party a seat in the Senate.  If Joe Lieberman expects to have any chance of getting reelected, he's got to run as either a Democrat or a Republican.  He's probably going to try to blackmail the Democratic Party into taking him back by threatening to run as a Republican.  That can only work if his approval ratings go up and he has a chance of winning.
