The AP Gets It Backwards
Democrats abandon Lieberman, back Lamont
Uh, no. Lieberman abandoned the Democrats.
This was the Democratic primary. Aren’t the primaries suppose to be the time when we, the people, express our views on who should represent the party at the next election? And shouldn't the Party, then support the winner of the primary?
What Hillary et al did is exactly what they should be doing, supporting the winner. If they didn't, then why have a Party at all if Party is the only one who gets to decide who will run.
It feels like this country is trying to become like the Mexico of old or the former Soviet Union - only the person in office gets to choose their successor and the people can pretend to have a vote.
