Although they can't say it in public, I'm sure that's what most of the Democratic Party is whispering tonight.
This was the man they chose as their Vice Presidential candidate in 2000. Who then turned on them to support George W. Bush's reelection in 2004 and McCain's Presidential candidacy in 2008.
For most of his legislative career, Lieberman has supported health care reform and expanding Medicare. But there are bigger things at stake here than the well-being of an entire nation. Lieberman was slighted by the liberal side of Democratic Party in 2006, when he lost the Democratic primary in Connecticut to Ned Lamont, and now they have to pay.
Of course, there's always the possibility that Lieberman's change of heart has something to do with that sweet sweet Connecticut health insurance lobby money he's grown accustomed to. Or maybe he's planning to run as Republican in 2012.
Frankly, I'm surprised that Wikipedia hasn't had to lock Lieberman's profile to keep out angry democratic vandals.
