Democrats Without Direction

You may be aware that three-term incumbent Joe Lieberman and Edward “Ned” Lamont will vie for the title of Connecticut’s Democrat Senatorial Candidate in that state’s primary next Tuesday.  Even though Lieberman was the Democrat’s Vice Presidential candidate in 2000 — since he has supported the war on terror, the anti-war Leftist Democrats have made Lieberman the target of their scourge.  This leads to an interesting observation from the famous National Review author William F. Buckley:

“It challenges the imagination to wonder productively what will be the political declamations at the Democratic convention in 2008 if the Democrats are to be the party that kicked out sitting Sen. Joe Lieberman six years after he was named their vice presidential candidate, notwithstanding that 90 percent of his Senate votes have been with his party, opposing President Bush.”
