They are not going to let Lieberman lose.
Advertisements [?]
Bill Clinton is all over the airwaves there, or will be soon.

Lieberman is getting huge new staff, ramping up. Looks like it really does mean they fear losing Lieberman more than gaining a great new candidate like Lamont.

I think it is about the Iraq war after all. The Democrats appear to need to keep it going as much as the Republicans, and Lieberman will do that for them.

Interesting how this is playing out, very interesting. It is about Lieberman, it is not about the Connecticut voters it appears to me. It is about keeping the "nutroots" from making a difference. It is not just about money either, as Lamont has his own money...he just can't use it in the race much anymore. Now Lieberman can ask for double donations.

The Clinton TV Ad Blitz to Come in Connecticut

"This is now a fight between whether Lieberman can lie and snooker enough reporters to reprint his lies, or whether Connecticut voters will have the opportunity to vote on Joe Lieberman's war. The whole Democratic machine from DC is helping Lieberman, including ex-President Clinton and lobbyists galore.

Lieberman's meltdown has stopped. This is going to be a dogfight from here on out"

And Lamont speaks out on the money we are spending abroad while depriving our own citizens of their needs.

""I think we're spending too much money abroad. I think we're wasting too much money in Iraq and I think we ought to be investing in jobs. I think we ought to be investing in education. I think we ought to make universal health care a right for every American in this country," says Ned Lamont, (D) For US Senate."
