Lieberman news

Lieberman's continued public embrace of the Iraqi war is producing some interesting consequences-

Political wire:

  1. We noted the possibility a few months ago and now the New York Times says former Connecticut Gov. Lowell Weicker (I) may run against Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) because of his support of the Iraq war.
    Said Weicker: "When you've become the president's best friend on the war in Iraq, you should not be in office, especially if you're in the opposing party. I'm going to do everything I can to see that Joe Lieberman does not get a free pass."

    (And the widely rumored-)

  2. Rumors that Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) will replace Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld resurfaced again on Face the Nation:
    Bob Schieffer: "Last night -- over this weekend, I had four different people tell me that the White House is thinking if the secretary of Defense goes over the next year -- and a lot of people think that he will, that the president is thinking of nominating Joe Lieberman to be secretary of Defense."
