Posted by Teh Nutroots | What do you know. In an interview with a Bay area talk show host, she actually said something worthy of not of a raspberry, but a tip of the hat. The sting's in the tail.
Joe Lieberman has said things that are totally irresponsible when it comes to Barack Obama. Here we have a leader for the future, really a great leader for the future and one that comes along only every now and then, and they know it so they have to undermine him. And one of their best weapons, of course, is someone who is considered by some to be a Democrat." (emphasis added)
She explains here why Democrats have dealt warily with Lieberman and what Senate Democrats might do about it if he carries on the way he's been doing.
At MyDD, Josh Orton is surprised she was this outspoken about consequences, but added:
I don't think Reid has too much more flex when it comes to Lieberman. Disagreeing on the surge is one thing, but Lieberman is now providing ammo for the McCain campaign to use in questioning Obama's patriotism. If this keeps up, I wouldn't be surprised if Reid got a bit firmer and gave Joe an "enjoy it while it lasts" statement of his own.
Jane Hamsher notes that it is tepid and late and the day, but "better late than never." "Wonder if this has anything to do with Cindy Sheehan making it onto the ballot?" she asks. Me too.
