17. Two things:
1) How does not pandering to his party mean he's not representing his state? The majority of people in Connecticut are not Democrats.

2) If Lieberman is trying to make it to the general election, where every voter in Connecticut will have a chance to vote whether he should continue to be their Senator, how does that mean he feels entitled to his seat?

I understand the arguments of disloyalty. I don't understand this one.
