Joe's defeat should send message
(snip)
Pick whichever wordplay you're partial to: Joseph Lieberman, 18-year member of the United States Senate, Democratic vice presidential nominee, staunch supporter of the war in Iraq, prominent hug-buddy to President Bush, a decent and honorable man, was defeated in his own political party by a guy no one had even heard of a year ago.

Are you watching, Hillary Clinton, you war-wobbly Democrat?

Are you listening, Peter King, you war-supporting Republican in a heavily Democratic state?

(snip)
It's what grumpy Texas populist Jim Hightower was always warning about well ahead of his time: "There's nothing in the middle of the road but yellow stripes and dead armadillos."

1. Hillary is not as offensive as Joe is.
Hillary does not bash the base of her own party and she has a better voting record then Joe does. I want her as a US Senator, but not President.

3. I don't care for her mealy mouthed war position.
But she has a record of voting with the base on very important issues.

4. At least she doesn't actively tear down her own party.
That's my biggest problem with Lieberman, Feingold, and Kucinich. We need to be sticking together to fight the Republicans and NOT fighting ourselves.

6. Bullshit.
He's been continually selling out this party over the IWR vote to make himself look better.
