5. there's support and then there's pseudo-support
the "yeah, i'll support Lamont because he's the nominee of our party" is a bit too minimalist for my tastes ... I think the minimum standard of REAL SUPPORT should include a condemnation of Lieberman's decision to run as an Indie ...

the "yeah i'll support him" is luke warm and sends a very, very weak message to the voters ...

and this business about not wanting to alienate Lieberman so he'll caucus with the Democrats is garbage ... Lieberman, if he won the Senate seat, would do whatever the hell he wanted regardless of how Dems treat him ... Democrats should do all they can to help Lamont and they should clearly state in no uncertain terms that Lieberman has sold out the Democratic Party ...

the OP "scorecard" is a good start ... in the end, though, the real test will not just be which team you're rooting for but how hard you fight to get that team elected ...
