Joe Lieberman (D-CT) lost his primary election by 52%-48%. The main difference between his positions and his opponent's, were that Lieberman supported the war against Islamic fascists, where his opponent favored pulling out immediately and letting Iraq go back to the terrorists. The Democrat extremists in Connecticut played up this difference for all they were worth, and Lieberman lost. If the election were held after the recent major plot was revealed to blow up ten airliners with 2,000+ people on board, how many of the CT voters would have changed their vote from Lamont to Lieberman, do you suppose? Enough to give him the edge? We'll never know.
