Thank God for Joe Lieberman. He now holds the balance of the Senate in his hands. He was elected an Independent, and even the Democrats understand the stakes by retaining his seniority in the party. There is a very good chance Lieberman has or will set down the law to the dems in the Senate for the next two years. He is pro Iraq war – he alone can stave off any move to pull the troops. If the Dems go to far he can switch power to the Reps and hold them accountable too. I hope he stays good to his word. Right now he is the most powerful man in Washington DC. In fact, he is setting himself up well for a run for the President.
In fact, Joe controls both sides of the aisle and will be key in a lot of conservative and liberal debates. Embryonic Stem Cell research? I am not sure but I believe Lieberman opposes it. Judicial nominations? A Gang of 14 member now controls the Senate. Immigration reform? You name it and Joe Lieberman has the final say (outside of Bush who must sign it). Move over Cheney, Lieberman just became Bush’s right hand man.
