    For an incumbent he didnt' do that well. I wouldn't go as far as saying the people really wanted him.

    Lieberman, really? You mean the guy that does whatever it takes to win an election even if it means changing parties?

    Like I said McCain is just lucky he ran against a bad candidate.
    To be fair, Lieberman was forced to go Independent because the Democrat Party has become very "Our way or the Highway". Joe didn't play their game and he got rolled by the party. The PEOPLE voted for HIM, not his party.

    I still don't like him much, but that whole scenario amused the hell out of me.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Primary voters in BOTH parties tend to be more extreme in their views than the general election electorate. Thus, candidates go to the extremes in primaries and rush to the center for the general.

    In Arizona? Not likely. Furthermore, McCain keeping his seat (which he will) is vital to GOP chances to take the Senate, remote as they are...

    Lieberman didn't change parties... he was tossed by extreme leftist Democrats...

    And that is what you and your ilk are doing with Republicans like McCain. Extemists in BOTH parties have become utterly intolerant of anyone who does not hold to the orthodoxy 100% and Heaven forbid anyone actually think of doing something like working together with others for the common good... No wonder why U.S. politics is so messed up today...

    He's a RINO and a panderer. The longer we keep people like this in office the more our country suffers and that goes for any party.

    And all you'll leave us with are extremists from both parties in the halls of government and nothing sensible will ever get done...

    I remember a time when Republicans and Democrats could actually work together to get things done for the good of the country and when Speaker O'Neil and President Reagan would share good natured quips and a healthy respect for one another... those days seem long gone...
