Just an opinion, one I am probably completely unqualified to make. However the internet is all about unqualified people expressing their opinions:-)

So we may luck out with Dan Malloy winning the Governorship of Connecticut. Which gives The Democrats and The President a beautiful opportunity.
We know Joe Lieberman loves Israel (and I mean that sincerely, not in a snarky manner)
So how about this? The President should offer up position of Ambassador to Israel to Joe Lieberman. That would be something I think he would have a difficult time turning down, its inevitable that he will either retire or be defeated in 2012. What a better way to retire than to be the ambassador to a country he has great affection for. The current ambassador was appointed by Bush anyways, and Lieberman would have no problem being confirmed by The Senate.
The benefit of this deal would that it would give Dan Malloy an opportunity to appoint Lieberman's replacement. Potentially giving us a reliable vote in The US Senate. We no longer would have to chronically repeat W.W.J.D. "What Will Joe Do?"
It's a win win!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
