Yes, it's easy for me to sit here and point fingers at Lieberman for not exhibiting leadership or courage but isn't that what he's there for? Oh, sorry. Forgive that momentarily lapse. I am still chuckling at the notion.
THE HILL reports that not only has Lieberman caved to the Democrats but he is now groveling after the fact:
Sen. Joe Lieberman (Conn.) told Democratic colleagues at the White House this afternoon that he regretted creating tension within their conference during the healthcare debate.Yes, the far left bloggers went after Lieberman's wife but at what point does fear in the face of intimidation take a back seat to principle?
Lieberman, a Democrat-turned-Independent who still caucuses with his former party, stopped short of apologizing. But he told colleagues that he is empathetic to the heartburn he caused.
For some reason, this video of Van Jones from February 11, 2009 came to mind. WARNING: the word A**hole is used with reckless abandon. Shortly after where this video cuts off, Jones makes reference to determining which "two or three" Senators need to have "really bad days".
