First this from Kos. Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman, a lifelong Democrat and student of politics, blanked when asked if America would be better off with his party regaining control of the U.S. House of Representatives.
A Democratic victory would immeasurably boost the influence of two Connecticut friends, U.S. Reps. Rosa L. DeLauro and John B. Larson, and provide a counterbalance to the Republican Senate and White House.
"Uh, I haven't thought about that enough to give an answer," Lieberman said, as though Democrats' strong prospects for recapturing the House hadn't been the fall's top political story.
He was similarly elusive about the race for governor. Is he voting for John DeStefano Jr., a Democrat and mayor of the city where Lieberman has lived since the 1960s?
Liberman is in danger of winning this. That would be a huge blow to the Democratic party. Your "Democratic" Senator is supporting the third party candidate, Joe Lieberman in this contest.
So if Carper and support 3rd party candidates why shouldn't I ? Spivack is an unambiguously anti-Iraq war candidate. But no more of this intra-mural comforting of Michael Castle.
I say we (Greens and liberal Democrats) get together after the election and figure out how to get the first Green party member of the Delaware legislature elected. Then we move on from that good faith, trust building campaign to get a full slate of unambiguously progressive Democrats and Greens elected.
Why am I staying loyal to a party with leadership that does not even demostrate the same level of loyalty?
