Well, I don't understand why Lieberman just didn't hire Armstrong.

Other Tom

This almost seems like a no-lose to me. I'm all for Joe, but if he is forced to run as an Indy I think he cleans Lamont's plow (with a lot of GOP crossover) and the moonbats are dealt another body blow.


I think there's a few that have been out Clinton'd.


I guess the instinct is to root for Lieberman. But for the Republican party, aren’t they better served by a Lamont victory?…trading a moderate, but none-the-less partisan Democrat for a moonbat lefty. Doesn’t that – in the end – continue to marginalize the Dems and bolster Republicans? Then again, I guess it doesn’t really serve America’s interests to have another nut in the Senate. A toss-up, I suppose.

I think independents would prefer a Lamont victory so that the Democrat Party can have the war that it, and the US voters, need to have. We need two competent parties to reflect a message that serves all of our interests. Right now the Democrats have nothing to offer of any interest. Their party needs to have its "netroots v. the Clintons" war.

It's the same as the Dean v. Everyone war that was briefly fought in 2004. Only this time there is a slim shot of actually winning some races this time around.

Every republican's favorite democrat.

Any wonder why Lamont's primary challenge is so successful?


Did you see Jane Hamsher there?

No? Odd...she had a ticket and was psyched to go.


Any wonder why Lamont's primary challenge is so successful?

Perhaps "success" is in the eye of the beholder. Best case scenerio for nutroots is Lamont wins the primary and then Joe wins the election. I don't quite see the "success' in that.

"Every republican's favorite democrat."

Never mine. Kent Conrad, Ben Nelson, Evan Bayh, Blanche Lincoln and maybe Ken Salazar all rank higher in my estimation. I'm sure that the Kosola Kidz will get around to them eventually.

Jimmy's Attack Rabbit

Being a Texan, I'd rather have the guy that would caucus with the Republicans. Whoever the Republican candidate is, (Schelinger?), would but apparently hasn't a chance. .......Aaron, I think every Republican's favorite Democrat is Howard Dean.


Lamont reminds me of jOhn Corzine and Frank Lautenslager from new Jersey. Rich men who think they deserve to start at the top and run things. They always end up doing more harm than good. Look at Corzine in the Senate and now as governor. What a waste of air!!


you hit it right on the head. What is it about New Jersey and Mass. New York and Connecticut that they would try to pawn off A Jillionaire like Lamont in the same way asDo nothing Corzine made his {irony here} mark on the Senate. These Northeast Senators with the exception of the Ladies from Maine and the Gentlemen from New Hampshire are a liberal wash as far as effectiveness in the Senate. Wanted; somebody in these states that actually cares about the future of America and isn't playing CYA politics all the time. Someone with a feasible agenda would be nice.
