Lieberman Loses, Isn't Finished

This is big. In fact, the media will make this into an even bigger story than it needs to be. A three term incumbent lost to a political novice in a primary, however, Joe Lieberman is not finished. Although Lamont will receive the full backing of the party establishment in terms of funds and other campaign tools, Lieberman might have too strong a coaltion of independents and Republicans to overcome.

It all depends on whether Republicans are willing to abandon their candidate for Lieberman. Recent polls show that they have.

Lieberman's finished, whether he admits it or not. Every Dem in the country will try to talk him out of running as an independent, because an independent will probably just split the left vote and hand the seat to the Repubs.

As someone who lost the vice presidency because of Nader splitting the far left, you think he'd know that already.

The Republican candidate, Schlesinger is shown to get less than 20% of the vote in a 3 way. He is a non-factor. Republicans will be voting for Lieberman.
