Â“It was all very warm, lots of hugs, high-fives, that kind of stuff,Â” said Senator Ken Salazar of Colorado.I heard that Chuckie Schumer kept asking Joe if he could get him some coffee, light and sweet.
Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon marveled, Â“One senator after another kept coming up and shaking his hand.Â”
And Senator Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas noted, Â“I gave him a hug and a kiss.Â”
Mr. Lieberman received a standing ovation at a caucus luncheon after Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, who is poised to become the majority leader, declared, Â“WeÂ’re all family.Â”
Man, if I were in the nutroots I'd be pretty pissed right about now.
Mr. Lieberman was asked Tuesday if he viewed his position as similar to a swing vote on the Supreme Court, a role often played by former Justice Sandra Day OÂ’Connor or Justice Anthony M. Kennedy. The parallel had not occurred to him, Mr. Lieberman replied, but he considered it Â“a complimentary analogy.Â”What a slap in the face! Are you Lefties gonna put up with this? I thought you ran that party. Show some balls, for crissakes!
He beamed as he said this, as he did for much of the day.

When asked on MTP yesterday morning whether he'd consider pulling a Jeffords, Lieberman responded: "I'm not ruling it out but I hope I don't get to that point."
Even if Joe has absolutely no intention of ever switching over to the Republicans (I think it'd have to be a pretty extreme situation to push him in this direction), the fact that he's clearly busting their balls brings a smile to my face this Monday morning.
