Leiberman, Lamont, and Liberals

Frequently I hear people complaining about how the Democrat party has abandoned its roots by opposing Leiberman in the primary. Frankly this gets pretty old for me. Why should a party not take the oppurtunity to remove a politician who disagrees with the party base on most issues simply because he’s been in the Senate before. Lamont has a good chance of winning the general election and therefore removing Leiberman and replacing him with Lamont is equivalent to beating a moderate Republican. I disagree with Lamont on pretty much everything, but I think that any party-line Democrat voter should choose Lamont over the DINO Leiberman.

    I think that the people who object to the Democratic Party abandoning Lieberman object to it precisely because it shows that the party base is such that it disagrees with Lieberman on most issues.

    Lamont’s victory ensures a republican victory in the Nov. elections. Lieberman runs as an independent splitting the democrat vote.
    No one can accuse the republicans of not being insidiously effective in remaining in control of all four branches of gov’t.

    carlos, don’t worry the Republican won’t win. He was polling around 9% at the time of the primary. By the way, what’s the fourth branch of government.

    WOW – he didn’t know there’s no republican in the race
