Joe Lieberman is about to announce that he will not run again for the Senate.
According to The New York Times,
Aides to Mr. Lieberman were in Stamford late Tuesday making preparations for his announcement on Wednesday.
One aide, speaking on condition of anonymity ahead of the announcement, said Mr. Lieberman arrived at his decision around Thanksgiving but postponed revealing his decision until after the legislative effort that culminated in the repeal of the "don’t ask, don’t tell" ban on gays in the military – an effort in which Mr. Lieberman played a central role.
He's one of the least popular Senators, and he obviously sees the writing on the wall. I have to admire him for his stand on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," but as a McCain supporter he was a terrible traitor to the Democratic party, which rightly rejected him.
