President Clinton Slams Lieberman

So much for "The Hug":

(Update: ThinkProgress has video.)

Lieberman has characterized his loss - and the need for his subsequent independent run - as liberals in the party purging those with the Lieberman-Clinton position of progressiveness in domestic politics and strong national security credentials.

"Well, if I were Joe and I was running as an independent, that's what I'd say, too," Clinton said.

"But that's not quite right. That is, there were almost no Democrats who agreed with his position, which was, 'I want to attack Iraq whether or not they have weapons of mass destruction.'"

"His position is the Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld position, which was, 'Does it matter if they have weapons? None of this matters. ... This is a big, important priority, and 9/11 gives us the way of attacking and deposing Saddam.'"

Clinton said that a vote for Lamont was not, as Lieberman had implied, a vote against the country's security....

Clinton said he campaigned for Lieberman because they had been friends for 35 years, and Clinton did not want the Democratic Party split over Iraq.

I agree with atrios over as Echchaton - time for the Big Dog to get to Connecticut.

The whole country's watching this race. It's important.

Chris Matthews's ran Loserman's latest ad and commented "I see dead people. (He's) pretending he's still running for the Senate. He's already lost."

Whoo Whoo!!!!
