      It was my enmity towards him in '06 that first brought me to DailyKos. But he hasn't made the faintest noise that he's wanting to investigate the Administration on any issue, and he's already a committee chairman now. Why is he all of a sudden going to want to do this after the elections when he'll be going into his own re-election campaign the next cycle?

        LIEBERMAN, COLLINS PLAN HEARING ON LAYERS OF TRAVEL SECURITY EVADED BY CHRISTMAS DAY TERRORIST

        Your argument seems to be that while running for re-election with zero support among Democratic voters in his state and needing to increase the support from conservatives he will... do nothing and be nice.

        My point was that there is a guarantee of hearings if Republicans take the House. They will ask honest politicians on both sides of the aisle to stand up for what's right. And Lieberman will... do nothing? He will be hounded by FoxNews as an Obama toadie and just another partisan if he does not.

        Like I said, I hope you are right.
