    Yeah. Former Democrat. Ostracized by the party. That was the POINT, champ.

    Leiberman is the way all people in congress should be. He is non partisan on many issues... If everyone in Congress was like him we would not have the problems we have now.

    Wait a minute you just said... "a 2 time senator, a Navy Seal, and most of all a holder of this countrys greatest award, the Congressional Medal of Honor."

    Nebraska must have a ****ed up electorate they'll not vote Kerrey because he has D after his name.

    Look I like Lieberman, but he left the Party because of the primary. They didn't kick him out and they ostracized him after he formed his own party. There is a difference between him and Kerrey.

    He's a moderate former Democrat who's pretty much persona non-grata in the Democratic Party. Yes, he was effectively kicked out of the Democratic Party IN that primary in favor of a non-moderate; the state of Connecticut saw things another way and elected him anyway.

    Which, I say again, is part of the point. The Democrats have purged their moderates in exactly the same way the Republicans have purged theirs.

    Oh I agree. My point was Lieberman still could have won that primary, but choose to drop out and ran as an independent. That probably didn't help his standing with the Party. I always wondered if he had lost the primary and then ran as an independent would things have turned out differently.

    I don't get what you're saying. He didn't drop out of the primary. He lost. Ned Lamont won it with 52% of the vote.

    You are right. I have not been able to multitask today with watching the NBA and typing on DP. In my mind I guess I went all the way up to the August primary but didn't think of the results.

    Bob Kerrey bid causes left to lash out - David Catanese - POLITICO.com


    “Before leaving Nebraska, Bob Kerrey voted to deregulate Wall Street, voted for NAFTA, and voted for the Iraq war. Since leaving Nebraska, he’s supported cutting Social Security benefits, raising the retirement age, and lowering corporate tax rates. Kerrey will clearly not be a priority for those looking to support populist candidates in 2012 — and Chuck Hassebrook will likely get a lot of attention,” said PCCC co-founder Adam Green.
    Democracy for America, Howard Dean’s Vermont-based political action committee, also indicated that Kerrey can’t count on their blessing in his attempt to replace conservative Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson, who is retiring
