42. Clinton made it clear to Lieberman he will support Lamont
if Lamont wins the primary. He probably isn't sure Lamont can win the general and/or there is an element of party loyalty to someone who served 18 years in the seat.

Can we agree that's understandable?

As much as there is a lot of kvetching about Bill Clinton banging the drum for Lieberman in the primary, the truth is he may be doing the Democratic Party a service by getting Lieberman to drop out when Lamont wins. I think that is the unspoken consequence of Lieberman losing the primary.

As much as the Clintons are vilified here, they both in the end came out on the right side of the most important part of this issue, supporting the candidate that wins the Democratic primary.

I can't say I have a problem with this under these circumstances.
