This is pure idiocy. But the mere mention of Lieberman's name is enough to make so many in Connecticut's leftwing blogosphere void in their hemp shorts. They can not control their anger or hate for the man who, despite the anointment of Ned Lamont, carried on to defeat the "progressive" peacenik two years ago.
McCain is considered a maverick in the GOP. The Democratic party doesn't have any "mavericks." It has loyal socialists, and those who have been excommunicated like Lieberman. There is no middle ground in that party, especially when you consider that the only issue Lieberman is on the opposite side of the fence of his party over is the war in Iraq.
Lieberman will be speaking at the GOP convention. He may also get a place in a McCain administration. But he will not be the vice presidential candidate. McCain cannot appeal to any more moderates than he does right now. Lieberman does not help him.
But don't take my word for it. Wait for August 29th.
