A little on Ned Lamont
I haven't written about this in awhile, but I'm still hoping to see Ned Lamont (Democrat) unseat Senator Joe Lieberman (Connecticut for Lieberman). Lamont is trailing in the polls. If Lieberman wins, expect him to serve a final term with a vengeance, if he doesn't accept a cabinet appointment from Bush instead. Lieberman will call himself an "independent thinker," but he'll really be the same Bush enabler that he's been since failing to become vice president in 2000. Actually, he'll be worse.
If Lieberman wins, I blame Bill and Hillary Clinton. Neither of them campaigned for Ned Lamont. They both endorsed him, sure, and Hillary loaned him a strategist, but neither of them went to Connecticut to stand by the Democratic nominee. They should be ashamed of themselves.
A Clinton visit really could have given Lamont a boost. Why did the Big Dog fail to go bark in Lieberman's yard? Why should we forgive either Bill or Hillary for failing to stand by the Democratic candidate who needed their help? I'll tell you this much, whether Ned wins or loses, Hillary doesn't get my vote in the 2008 primary. If she wins and heads to the general election, I'll vote for her. But she's sacrificed my primary vote by failing to stand up against the odious senator from Connecticut.
