What Joe Lieberman's Word Is Worth
Joe Lieberman answers the question of whether he'd consider joining the Senate Republican caucus. In the final hours of the campaign:
"It is a totally closed issue. I know this is a great sport ... but I pride myself on keeping my word. And I have said explicitly that I will, if I am re-elected, I will organize with the Democrats."November 8:
"The answer is no. When I give my word I stick with it, and I am definitely going to organize with the Senate Democrats."November 12:
"I'm not ruling it out, but I hope I don't get to that point."What happened between November 8 and 12, Joe? Harry Reid didn't call you soon enough to offer you your choice of committee chairs?
I liked what you said, "Harry Reid didn't call you soon enough to offer you your choice of committee chairs?" LOL
As a wakeup call to Lieberman, perhaps the DNC could offer a disaffected GOP Senator, if they jump ship, a Chairmanship, rubbing Lieberman's nose in it.
