So Lieberman loses to Ned Lamont.
This doesn't mean a decisive victory for the Dems in Washington come autumn. Nor does it mean that there's any dramatic swing leftwards, politically. Ned Lamont may be a nice enough guy to sweat it out with underneat a campagin trail tent, but I remain skeptical as to how the scion of J P Morgan money has a clue on the blue-collar perspective on issues outside the Iraq quagmire discourse.
From my vantage point, I'm taking a wait and see approach.
The good thing to the elction is that it makes it abundantly clear [to some, at least] that Joe's loyalty seems to be mostly to his pension benefits. Rovians may disagree. I expect to see a lot of vitriol spilled in the name of patriotism by Joe's camp in the coming months.
