Lamont Looks Good For Primary

It's becoming more and more likely that Joe Lieberman will be ousted from the Democratic Party by primary challenger Ned Lamont. Daily Kos goes off on a rant about how the party establishment is supporting Lieberman, despite his dissent from several key Democratic positions.

However, Kos inaccurately labels Lieberman "Bush's BFF [Best Friend Forever]." The most Lieberman has ever dissented from the party leadership in one year was 28%, as shown by a New York Times chart the other day.

However, Lieberman often speaks against the party on important issues such as Iraq, social security, and health care. His rhetoric often undermines the Democratic platform, and makes those to the left seem radical.
