Party Be Damned

Lieberman loses, 52-48, and immediately announces he'll run as an Independent. Notably this is only the fourth time since 1980 that an incumbent senator has lost his party's nomination.

What does this tell you? It says people have had enough of the continued failure in Iraq. It says Lieberman is willing to put himself before party unity and helping in the cause to amass a large enough Dem majority post-November to hopefully change the power structure of key positions.

It's amazing that not too long ago this guy ran as the Dem's VP. Meanwhile, Hillary has to be concerned about this outcome.
