Perhaps Marshall Wittman can explain this one to me, if he can pull himself away from his John McCain shrine for a moment. Lieberman, as those in the Lieberman wing of the Democratic party will tell us, is the kind of Democrat we should embrace in large part because of his hawkish or muscular or visionary or whatever we're calling it this week foreign policy. To win, Democrats need to embrace such foreign policy leaders.How is that working?
Fine, fine. But if that's the case, why won't Joe talk about the war? If he's the foreign policy leader we're supposed to embrace, why won't he, you know, lead on the damn issue?
Democrats who support the Neocons do so at the peril of the troops, America's standing in the world, and their political future.
There were not, as stated in the previous post, 11 people who attended the three Lieberman events today. I am now told there were a total of 7, and all of them turned up to one event — the other two were empty.Meanwhile Ned attended the Glastonbury Irish Festival tonight and was treated like a rock star when he walked through the crowd.
For the DLC Democrats who got us into this mess, pay attention to what is going on in Connecticut because 2008 is just around the corner.
