Lieberman Leaning Further Republican
Political Insider‘s Alec Oveis:
Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D/I-CT) told CongressDaily that he will support Sen. Susan Collins’s (R-ME) re-election bid in 2008, “even though Democrats have already targeted her seat to try to keep control of the Senate.”
“Lieberman also reserved the option of endorsing a Republican for president in 2008 and repeated statements that he has not ruled out a future — albeit unlikely — switch to the Republican Party.”
This has moved beyond the point of farce. Lieberman has cut ties with the Democrats–who cut ties with him in the primary, after all–but continues to pretend that he’s an “Independent Democrat.”
He should resign his seat and run for re-election as a Republican in 2008. Indeed, I suspect Jodi Rell could be talked into appointing Lieberman to fill the seat created by the Lieberman resignation.
