Edwards Calls On Lieberman To Drop Out

Late Update: ConnecticutBlog has video of Edwards' remarks:

I do not think Lieberman should be running. I do not believe he should be running as an Independent. I mean, if he ran as a Democrat, he asked Democratic voters to vote for him, they chose someone else, you know, we have to show respect for the people who voted in the primary. So, I would go further than just being for Lamont. I do not think that Lieberman should be running.




Just back from New Haven, where, in a pre-rally discussion with local bloggers, former Sen. Edwards specifically called on Sen. Lieberman to listen to the Democratic voters of Connecticut and drop out of the race.

Paul Bass has an early report and Spazeboy has some early video.

The official blog has a write-up and some great photos.

Another winner rescued from obscurity by the liberals
 
Also DiNardo finally popped the question:

Also Thursday, Nancy DiNardo, chairwoman of the Connecticut Democratic Party, called on Lieberman to drop his independent bid. She added that Lieberman "respectfully declined" her request.

"It is my strong belief that Senator Lieberman should abide by the wishes of state party members and by the democratic process," DiNardo said in a statement.

hey Mel? When we want your opinion we'll rip out your guts and read your entrails.
 
Have y'all heard about Lieberman’s sucking up to Louis Farrakhan in the spring of 2000, which as I've already noted here was long after pretty much every reputable national black leader had renounced and denounced Farrakhan and his anti-semitic views?

You know what to do.
 
Lieberman's obligation to the Democrats of CT is nothing. He's not running as a Democrat. You guys say he's not a real Democrat.

So why is his obligation to the Democrats any higher than Schlesinger's?

It's one thing to endorse Lamont. It's another to also be really foolish and make silly statements like this one.
 
WT, dont make the mistake I did and try to talk rationally with the irrational. Check out my blog and see what happens to you.
 
I like how a couple of weasels (TW, EnergyAnalyst) fly right down to post troll comments on a blog like buzzards grabbing whatever pathetic scraps they can. Get a room, fellas. Better yet, get a life.
 
why? it's so much more fun to be part of yours

Bullshit. He ran as a Democrat, with the endorsement and assistance of the party. He lost. If your team loses the pennant, you can't get traded across to play against them in the World Series.
 
" He ran as a Democrat, with the endorsement and assistance of the party. He lost. If your team loses the pennant, you can't get traded across to play against them in the World Series."

Very true. Also, he is running as an independent Democrat. He is still claiming to be a Democrat, just not associated with the party, whatever the hell that's supposed to mean. GET OUT OF THE RACE, LOSERMAN.
 
Actually, if he stays in the race, you will have to call him winnerman--and isn't that what bothers you most of all.
 
Of course Lieberman is entitled to run. It also brands him as a hypocrite and untrustworthy, because running as an independent goes against many principles he has preached in the past. An intelligent voter, even if he/she supported Lieberman's political views, realizes this and will vote for someone else. So this election will be a referendum on whether Connecticut voters have enough self-respect to reject someone who has played them for fools.
 
No, CT voters will realize what Lieberman has realized. Much of the democrat party is out of the mainstream and needs to be turned out. In the end people vote for people who reflect their views. they dont care what party they belong to. the party of Ned Lamont, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John Murtha, John Kerry, et al does not reflect the views or values of most of America, so ...
