    >>>>when she announced her write-in campaign. By contrast, Senate Democrats, as Lieberman has proven in the past, do not take any action against their wayward members no matter what they do.

    Ordinarily it is important to punish those who campaign for an opponent Pres nominee as did Joe in 2008!  But Lieberman made up a coaltion of 60 D votes that stood up to Republican opposition.

    Had he been punished he might have voted with them on more issues or worse--defected into GOP caucus but still remained  an Indepdendent.

    Not punishing Joe was to keep him on board.
