  •  Lieberman will never switch (1+ / 0-)

    The GOP doesn't want a pro-choice, pro-union, pro-gay, pro-gun control Senator whose running mate was Mr. Global Warming.

    And Nelson will likely not switch, because the GOP wouldn't want someone who voted for healthcare reform, the stimulus, and DADT repeal.

      He may not be willing to switch, but if it's close to a tie, I don't think we can ignore the possibility that he'd vote for McConnell as majority leader, if only out of spite.  He'll vote for Reid as leader as well, but I'm guessing only for a price.

      He's a schmuck, as we all know.

        that he's given more money to Reid's campaign than any other senator, I'm going to assume the best.

          Lieberman owes Reid a great deal.  Anyone else would have made Lieberman pay a price for his behavior in 2008.  Not that loyalty means all that much to that smug son of a bitch.

          I'm guessing that what loyalty Lieberman does have is strictly personal.  He certainly hasn't been showing any to the people he represents.  I don't think he's even shown much to the people who voted for him.
