It was hard to miss the place. News trucks lined up outside all down Pearl St., and around the corner next to the Goodwin. I parked a discreet distance away.
The Lieberman event itself is being held in the foyer of the Goodwin Hotel in Hartford. It is at once ostentatious and surprisingly cramped. The foyer itself is long and narrow. At the front is a large American flag, in front of which is a podium that says "Joe Lieberman: Fighting for Connecticut" on it. The media is confined in a little area behind the risers. If many more of us show up, it's going to get very tight. I can't actually see anything.
They moved this event several times. I don't quite know why.
I talked with a Hillary Clinton supporter who was here to both drum up support for Hillary in 2008, and to support Lieberman. He believed that a Lieberman loss would be devestating for Hillary. He told me of all the anti-Semitism beneath the surface of the Lamont campaign, and how only Lieberman--and possibly Hillary could deal with something like the current situation in the Middle East.
Staff are hard to find, right now. I also have the feeling that the big media personalities are all at the Lamont campaign.
But tonight, as there, history will take place. I'll keep you updated as the night unfolds.
