Just Say "No" Joe

Last night, both Stewart and Colbert were all over Lieberman's case for his intent to run as an independent. Stewart nailed him on his analogy of this being halftime of a game with the opponent ahead. Game's over, you lost, was Stewart's suggestion. It's hard to see any good coming from Lieberman's plan to continue to run. And great potential for splitting at the local party level.

the CT party is robust. Nothing will happen if JL runs.

What I predict...

JL has polls that show him winning a GE against NL (he has support from everyone *but* the far left and right).

If he sees him losing to NL in the polls he withdraws.

No GOP senator, no matter what.

JL will still caucus with the dems and probably declare himseld as a Dem once the session starts .

He's got Nader disease. Spoiler with a cause. And if you take a look at opensecrets.org, you'll see his cause is about a million bucks per election cycle in donations.

"He's got Nader disease. Spoiler with a cause"

To have "Nader disease" one must spoil an election.

JL won. for 18 years.

...and now he is going to be a spoiler like Nader if he thinks that will preserve his seat in the Senate. No evident principles there except trying to hold on to his seat and the perks that come with it.

only the hard line conservatives support JL. JL has support from, basically, all moderates. Even GOPers.

As I said before, if a poll shows he will lose/cause an upset, he withdraws.

Contrary to popular belief, he does care about the Democratic Party and wants to see a majority Dem Senate.
