"So, how's it going on the campaign trail, Liebs, old pal? Looking forward to keeping that seniority are we? Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge. Say no more?"
The nutroots, of course, sees this as a betrayal. And I don't blame them.
Tom Matzzie, the Washington director of MoveOn.org, a liberal advocacy group that supports Lamont, said Lieberman may be spreading false information to make himself a more attractive candidate.Seems to me that Reid and co. not only see the writing on the wall in terms of Lamont's viability but they're also making preparations should the Senate make-up end up in a tie - 49-49-2.
This is a Lieberman campaign tactic, he said. Democratic leaders are supporting Ned Lamont.
Bill Grad, who sits on the Democratic Town Council of Greenwich, Conn., Lamonts home town, said Lieberman has very actively distanced himself from the Democratic Party, and that it was wrong of leaders to promise anything.
Why should Reid tell the guy in advance that hell have his seniority. If it comes to that, thats fine. But its disappointing, its greatly disappointing that he would be given assurances.
It'll be interesting to read the Lefty blogs in the coming days.
