Disclosure: I worked for the Lamont campaign doing web design and production and some writing for the official blog (from 9/5/06 to 11/07/06).

Wednesday Morning Round-Up
- Harold Meyerson takes apart Lieberman's recent interview to Broder in the Washington Post.
- The Courant weighs in on Lieberman's tough spot on two Democratic amendments concerning Iraq to be voted on today or tomorrow in the Senate. It'll be interesting to see how this turns out. As Harry Reid said, "even Republicans don't agree with Joe" on Iraq. And Schumer obviously doesn't want to deal with Joe:
Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, would say only, "We have a good resolution that senators can support." Asked how it might affect Lieberman, he walked away without answering.
- John Dickerson, skeptic of Lamont, writes for Slate:
If Lamont has been unconventional and smart, Lieberman so far has been conventional and dumb. Fortunately for the far better-funded Lieberman, the race is a referendum on him, and he is widely respected and admired in the state.
Uh, John? Might want to check out actual recent polls before you claim someone is "widely respected and admired."
- How can the front page of Lieberman's campaign website ask whether Ned Lamont will "agree to a debate," when Ned was the one who proposed multiple debates back in March, and who agreed to this specific July 6th debate days before Joe himself did? Spazeboy has more on Joe's par-for-the-course deception.
- CTBlogger is still keeping track of various prominent state Democrats' on-the-record statements about their willingness to support the winner of the primary. CTKeith gets a "non-answer" answer from Rep. DeLauro.
