  •  Only way Lieberman switches (0+ / 0-)

    is in a 50-50 Senate where somehow the Republicans can absolutely, positively guarantee he will not face a primary opponent.

    Otherwise, he's done in two years anyway, what's the point in switching?

    If there is anything I have learned from Scooby Doo, it is that the only thing to fear is crooked real estate developers.

      What was his point to Campaign for John?

      What was the point to screw up Public Option?

      What IS the Point to Joe Lieberman?  Joe Lieberman.

      that would be the best reason to switch.  51-49.

      •  How many Senators (0+ / 0-)

        have ever switched parties to put themselves in the minority?

        •  Let me try this again. (0+ / 0-)
        •  !@#$%^& Computer.. Let me try this again, AGAIN.. (0+ / 0-)

          Sorry.

          ASSUME, Hopefully NOT. But ASSUME.. 51-49 Dem (With Sanders/Lieberman).

          Now, Crazy Joe and Nutty Ben get together, Say "We're basically Reps anyhow.  Heck, Joe.. you CAMPAIGNED for John last time, and they were STUPID enough to allow you to keep the chair so you can sabotage everything.. "

          Joe: "And I LOVE how you screwed up the Stimulus, and Health care? Where's the care?? If it wasn't for Bernie's clinics, NOTHING would HAVE THE WORD CARE IN IT.."  Tell you what, Let's talk to Mitch, and if we both go, WE ARE MAKING A REPUBLICAN MAJORITY..

          Note the last part, 51-49, Swap TWO, And that becomes 49-51 REPUBLICAN.  They wouldn't BE in the minority under this scenario..
