    soon after he arrived as a new U.S. Senator.  I had contributed to his Senate campaign and after he was elected, I tracked his news stories and photos--he was getting quite a lot of press coverage for a freshman senator.  Over and over again, I would see Joe Lieberman at Obama's side, standing at his elbow or right behind him.  But Lieberman was not the only senator hovering around Obama, other senators with presidential ambitions were picturing this rising-star Democrat as their v.p. running mate in '08.  How dare, dare, DARE this new kid usurp their dream? Who did he think he was?  Did he think he could get away with cutting ahead of them in line to the White House?

      •  Mostly tragedy. (0+ / 0-)

        One comic moment: There was one picture where it looked very much like other senators had jostled Lieberman to the side in order to be photographed standing closer to Obama.  Joe did not look like a happy camper, a most sour look on his face.  

        But I thought of that when Obama announced his run for president. Mentor Lieberman probably had that look on his face again.  Now he's getting payback on the lot of them.
