[Media Source*] (Hat Tip: GOP Bloggers)
It appears that many liberals are unhappy with Joseph Lieberman and are giddy to challenge him in the primaries for his seat.
The theory is that Connecticut, a fairly liberal northeastern state, is prime territory for a further-left candidate to get a boost from the Internet-based fundraising from the grassroots. And the Dean-Kos-Boxer axis of the party would love to punish their least favorite Democrat.
Driving Lieberman from office - yeah, that's just what the Democratic party needs.
Such actions would be utterly stupid since Joseph Lieberman can do something that few Democrats have been able to comprehend, let alone master: talking to people of faith.
This is something that not even Hillary has been able to master as one can see from her radical shift in referencing "faith."
Answering yet another 2008 question, she said she's too busy and added, "I have more than I can say grace over right now." Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan amusingly translated the religious allusion as: "I'm running, is this not obvious to even the slowest of you?"
As Hillary's attempts at portraying herself as the "conservative democrat" bring laughter among those of faith, pushing out Joseph Lieberman would fracture the North East as he is popular on both sides of the political spectrum. Joseph Lieberman is one of the few voices that can negotiate with Republicans and removing him would burn any future bridges the Democrats have with the Republican party.
