Big Dog on Lieberman: "His position is the Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld position"
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.'"

1. A few more good quotes
"The Republicans should be very careful in trying to play politics with this London airport thing, because they're going to have a hard time with the facts."

"They seem to be anxious to tie it to al Qaeda. ... If that's true, how come we got seven times as many troops in Iraq as in Afghanistan?" he said. "Why have we imperiled President Karzai's rule and allowed the Taliban to come back into the southern part of Afghanistan? Why was Iraq deemed to be seven times more important than finding the al Qaeda leaders for the last five years?"

Secondly, Clinton asked why the administration and congressional leadership had opposed tighter security on cargo containers at ports and airports.

3. Why was he supporting Traitor Joe only a week ago?
Politicians are some strange mofos.

6. The Clinton endorsement cost Lieberman in his conservative Dem...
And independent base, without gaining him anything on his left flank. I suspect that's why Clinton did it.

4. You know, Wesley Clark has stronger national security positions

than either H. Clinton or Lieberman and he warned AGAINST the war.

How does that grab the DLC-enablers and the GOP? :P

7. A real president -- and I'm going to see him in just a few hours!!!
:woohoo:

There's a rally with him Gov. Granholm, Sen. Stabenow and others before they go off to a fundraiser. I'm so excited I can hardly concentrate at work.

8. He forgot to add "Clinton" to that list--
as in Hillary Rodham Clinton. Sorry, Bill, as much as I dislike the Joe, you don't get to stake out that particular position as the high ground.
