Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), a former Democrat who backed John McCain for president, is expected to meet with Majority Leader Harry Reid later this week to discuss Liebermans fate in the Senate Democratic Caucus. A senior Democratic aide said that Liebermans chairmanship of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hangs in the balance.

In fact, a large portion of the conversation will focus on that. Lieberman to discuss fate with Reid - John Bresnahan and Ryan Grim - Politico.com It would appear that Harry Reid is not wasting anytime in kicking people to the curb.
