169. Why have primaries with losers like Lieberman?
Lieberman lost in the 2004 primaries against John Kerry, he lost against Ned Lamont in the 2006 primary 48% to 52%. So why was this sore loser allowed to run under his own selfish ticket in November?

I think Lieberman is planning to run for President in 2012! Will he run against Obama under the conservative party ticket or will he run in the Republican primaries?

I think Lieberman will do both..he'll run as a Republican in New Hampshire and Iowa, if he doesn't run for re-election, and if he isn't on the Republican ticket in 2012 he'll run as a conservative third-party backstabber.

:puke:I think Lieberman just loves backstabbing folks..regardless of their political party!
