Monday Morning Round-Up
- Lost in the hubub surrounding Lieberman yesterday was Ned Lamont's appearance on Face the State. Ned Lamont Resource has it uploaded.
- Speaking of yesterday, Christine Stuart has a report on Lieberman's "shocking" statement that he would throw away his 36 year career as a Democrat and disregard the opinion of Democratic voters in a primary in a desperate attempt to keep his job:
Al Simon, a Democrat on the Windsor Town Council, said he was “shocked” by Lieberman’s response to a question from 17-year-old Joe Lalli, who had asked about the possibility of Lieberman running on his own if the Democrats opted not to endorse his nomination.
“I think a lot of Democrats will be shocked” that Lieberman would consider a running as an Independent after being a Democratic for more than 35 years, Simon said....
Lucky for Lieberman, Lalli won't turn 18 in time to vote in November.
- Chris Andersen, Matt Stoller, and Howie Klein all have insightful takes on yesterday, too. And once again, right-wing bloggers are the only pro-Lieberman voices in the blogosphere on this.
- Ned's at the Pine Point School in Stonington for a fundraiser today. Joe's in Hartford for a press conference on Global Warming this morning. Wonder if he'll get any other questions?
