Integrity, of which whiney prune face Lieberman has none, is more important than political experience when a rep is elected to represent their constituency. Lieberman and his equally prune faced self-serving lobbyist wife are disgraceful. Lamont was a far superior human being than Lieberman, let alone a candidate.

He won by over 100,000 votes as an Independent. I would say the people of Conn. wanted him despite the fact that the Democrat Party did not.

Didn't he win as a independent? Do you know for a fact he is not representing his constiutuents...

It is so refreshing to see adults call people names, I am sure you are beautiful, loving, the ideal weight and have everyone drooling over you. What a wonderful person you must be....

The democratic leadereships already tired to kickput Libermann but it did work;he won reelection as a independent.With teh populace movemnet is going to be harder to run aginst independent more than ever by both parties.They tried it last ti9me because of his support for the wars in Iraq and afgansistan and it backfired on them.

Gee and all this time I though campaigning for McCain might have had something to do with it.
The 2006 election came first, when the far left were successful in defeating Joe in the CT democratic primary. Fortunately, he ran as an Independent and rubbed their faces in the dirt, and rightfully so.

2008 election cam 2 years after that.

In 2006 Lieberman ran saying he backed a public option.

Well to you he is, what about Spector? I think we could find others as well. Spector switched cause he knew he couldn't win the Republican primary.

As for Liberaman, I see you mentioned he votes right, is anything that is slightly more to the right than totally left wing liberal causes voting right? Actually he really doesn't vote right often.

ALL the polls show the American people DO NOT want either of the bills in congress to pass.

Wake up.

RealClearPolitics - Election Other - Obama and Democrats' Health Care Plan

The public might well believe a PO would be good, but when they realize the government would be running it, taxes would increase, premiums would go up, rationing would ensue and the quality of care would plummet....they are dead set opposed to the bills before congress.

The question is...why did the turncoat change his mind? Something to do with his bank account, maybe?

Why does Joe Lieberman oppose healthcare reform? Ask his wife

If Democrats are disappointed by Joe Lieberman’s threat to filibuster any healthcare reform bill that includes a public option, they shouldn't be. Despite all of his past promises to support universal healthcare, nothing was more predictable than the Connecticut senator's fealty to the insurance and pharmaceutical lobbyists.
