    Why is that interesting? Lieberman's been a republican for the last six years -- except in formal party affiliation.

    Really? What is his liberal/conservative score? Other than the war, what do you disagree with him on?

    LIEberman has infinitely more clout as an independent that he would as a turncoat member of the republican party. Iraq is a bucket of shit. It is not going to get any better between now and 08.... if the republicans were to regain the majority in the senate, the only practical benefit it gives them is supreme court nominees...and you can bet your bottom dollar that if Joe swings to the dark side, any moderate/liberal jurist will stay where he or she is until after '08 so that benefit is moot. In 08, the republicans will lose more seats. When they do, Joe will be just another relatively powerless member of the minority.
