Squishy Joe

Sometimes the news amuses. Take the Joe Lieberman story for example. It seems that Lieberman would consider leaving the Democratic party if they voted to defund the war in Iraq. I'm watching and reading Republicans, conservatives even, who excitedly call for Lieberman to make the switch. These are some of the same people who pull their hair out at the likes of Lincoln Chaffee, Olympia Snowe, Arlen Spectre, and other Republicans who lean too far left. I like Lieberman, too, and I applaud his position on the war, but his changing parties wouldn't change much. His vote on war issues would remain the same. Control of the Senate would not necessarily flip to Republicans. And Lieberman would still vote Democrat on a number of issues. Seems like a wash to me.
