Want to see a Democratic senator squirm? Don't ask about Iraq or gasoline prices. Ask about Joe Lieberman.
They edge toward the door, duck into the elevator, scoot down the hall to avoid the question: Will you support Joe Lieberman if he loses the Aug. 8 Senate primary to Ned Lamont and runs as an independent?
Not to worry though. Even if Lieberman ditches the Democrats he'll still be one of us.
Anyway, he[Lieberman] said, Democrats should not worry if he runs as an independent.
"I'd organize with the Democrats if I'm fortunate enough to win," he said. "I'd remain a Democrat."
I wonder how many Senators will come out to campaign for Lieberman in the primary? If Lamont wins who will come out to campaign for him? Speculate away!
