Jewish Russian Telegraph: Senator Joe Lieberman refuses to rule out switch to GOP

 Well, I went to Jewish Russian Telegraph in order to link to it on my new blog and found this:



HARTFORD, Conn. –Sen. Joe Lieberman on Sunday repeated his pledge to caucus with Senate Democrats when the 110th Congress convenes in January, but refused to slam the door on possibly moving to the Republican side of the aisle.


………………………………………………………………..


“I’m not ruling it out but I hope I don’t get to that point,” he said. “And I must say — and with all respect to the Republicans who supported me in Connecticut — nobody ever said, ‘We’re doing this because we want you to switch over. We want you to do what you think is right and good for our state and country,’ and I appreciate that.”


Ronald Reagan used to say: “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left me”.  Senator Lieberman will have to say: “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party threw me out”.  At this point he was the last sane member of the Democratic Party.  I do hope that this once great party will be able to get its sanity back, so that we can have some real choice by the time of next elections.  I am not holding my breath, though.
