    Thats amazing, he is one of the most liberal democrats yet is being hung out to dry by his own party simply because he doesn't jump on the Hate-Bush Bandwagon.

    The primary reasons some Democrats (myself included) have problems with Lieberman is because of his blind support for the war and because of his blind support for the Bush-Cheney energy bill which was loaded with giveaways to big oil and stripped environmental protections, including allowing for drilling in environmentally-sensistive areas off the East coast.

    However, if I lived in Connecticut, I would likely vote for Joe Lieberman in this primary. I do think he's a good man, has generally been a good Senator, and is a good Democrat despite his poor record on the war and on this energy bill.

    So if you oppose the war you are enlightened, but if you support it, you are "blind". Yeah, right.

    By "Blind" support, I mean that Lieberman has continued to support the war despite evidence that shows that Bush lied about it. And the fact that he voted for the energy bill (the only New England senator Republican or Democrat to do so) despite the massive implications for the environment and the massive giveaways to big oil and energy producers.

    The GOP could learn something from the Dems in CT, namely that in the primaries, party voters should elect someone who best fits their ideology. Lieberman is losing support because he doesn't stand for the same ideals that many CT Dems stand for; the Dems are a left-wing party, and rightly demand left-wing candidates. In the same manner, Republicans should elect people who stand for the party's conservative ideals instead of settling for people like McCain, Chafee, or Snowe.
