    I think Joe burned too many bridges with his high profile role in McCain's campaign.

    Well from the buzz Ive heared around here in CT, people are really sick of him.

    My personal opinion is he's shown he just really wants to be in office, whatever the cost.

    Dont expect him to win CT again thats for sure.

    Ya think? :p

    Don't look for Obama to cut Lieberman much slack after the way Lieberman stabbed him in the back after Obama supported him in his Senate run after he left the Democratic party. As repayment for such a political gift, Lieberman campaigned for McCain, gave a speech at the GOP convention, and said horrible things about Obama on the campaign trail.

    Welcome to political irrelevance Joe. Better get done what you can before your turn for re-election arrives again. I guarantee you will face some very angry CT voters...

    He's got four more years before has to stand for election again. Either he does it as a Republican or gets out of Dodge.

    I know hes still got a good run left, but I dont think he has anywhere near the support he used to and surely will not win.

    On an interesting side note:

    My aunt actually used to babysit his kids when she was younger, apparantly hes not so nice, and pays lousy.

    Yep thats for sure, thats why he stood as an Independent when the Democrats rejected him.

    I strongly dislike Libermann. The Dems don't need him in the senate, they shouldn't bother with him anymore.

    He thought he'd be serving in a McCain cabinet and wouldn't have to go back and face his Senate colleagues. He's one of the top 5 losers of this campaign.

    Have to agree, he will certainly be sidelined by the Democrats.

    Can't believe we actually nominated this doofus for Vice President eight years ago.

    Not only did he campaign against Obama, he said this:

    If he thinks and says the country won't survive Democratic control, he shouldn't be part of the Democratic caucus, or want to be.

    There's a difference between tolerance and standing for someone who actively campaigned against Obama wanting to now be able to come back in the fold.

    He really left the fold two years ago, when he lost the nomination for Senate and ran as an independent. He can't really expect to caucus with the Democrats when he hasn't been one for years.

    He never was in the fold, but if the Senate had the super majority with exactly 60 democrat senators ya think he wouldn't be back in the fold...Really..??

    He told party members that he would speak at the other party's convention, which isn't unheard of, but that he wouldn't say anything bad about Obama as he campaigned for McCain. He broke the second part of his pledge, which is the part the Democrats have a problem with.

    He also stood behind McCain while he called him a socialist and so on. Not cool when Obama helped him get elected.

    He blew it, IMO, and at the minimum he should lose his chairmanship of the homeland security committee.

    Im guessing he could live with that...I am also guessing he did what he thought was best for our country and not for party, as Zell Miller..
