    So Lieberman is now opposing the health care bill, even after changes were made to bring it closer in line with his position:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/14/health/policy/14health.html?_r=1

    And guess what? For all the claims by Lieberman now that the Medicare buy-in is so crazy and radically left-wing, he ran for Vice President on a platform which proposed exactly this idea. So maybe his views have changed in the last eight years, you could say. That could be possible, except for that fact that he was touting this very idea three months ago.

    Face it. Lieberman isn't interested in a better bill. He's throwing a little fit because he lost the primary in 2006 due to grassroots opposition from the left and he feels this is his best chance to get revenge.

    yeah, when i think grass roots, i think ned "thanks, j.p. morgan!" lamont.

    the roots must not have been very deep, because lieberman surely kicked his ass in the general election.
    :rofl:

    Lieberman is an opportunist. He's smart but it's all about him. I hope they do get some moderate Republicans for healthcare just to shut him up for awhile.

    He's such an attention whore.

    connecticut will reelect him until he gets sick of running, but you keep telling yourself that if it makes you feel better.

    Louisianna got $300m. for a vote. Why shouldn't Conneticut get greased? I'll tell you why, they are both wrong.

    based on the way he kicked lamont's ass up one side of connecticut and down the other in 2006, despite the big dem wins nationwide and despite the DNC targeting lieberman.

    the dems should worry about holding on to chris "what special deal on my mortgage?" dodd's seat more than trying to unseat lieberman.
