    He has been granted a political bailout. But I see no negative

    with keeping him on. It would seem rather hypocritical for the

    democrats to strip him if they are pushing that bipartisanship message.

    Also if he continues his turncoat behavior the senate democrats can always

    strip him down the road. If I was Lieberman I would be more concerned with

    my relection possibility, I am sure his democratic constituents are furious.

    Better to have him in the tent pissing out than vice versa, I suppose

    You mean the ones that voted for him over a Democratic candidate?

    It's wise from a certain perspective. But from another, "bi-partisanship" does not require that you don't smack down someone who says the things he said about his candidate.

    The good news is Obama now owns him.

    I agree but that smack down could backfire. So the safe bet is too

    look like the good guys and allow him to keep his position. This will

    reinforce the belief that Obama is ushering a different style of politics.

    And you are right, he is now owned by the dems and Obama, remeber they

    can still strip him at anytime they feel like it. I honestly feel he will not be

    relected in 2010. So either way I see the democrats making a postive gain

    from this scenario.
