Joe Lieberman to Endorse Scott Brown?
by: Cool Cal
Sat Jan 16, 2010 at 23:20:02 PM EST

Beforeitnews.com http://beforeitsnews.com/story/12208/Joe_Lieberman_Endo... is reporting the rumor that Connecticut Senator, and 2000 Democratic Party Nominee for Vice President, Joe Lieberman may endorse Scott Brown for U.S. Senate.
Joe Lieberman may be close to announcing his suppport for Massachusetts Senate Candidate Scott Brown. Citing the historical Healthcare Reform Bill as the main issue attracting Lieberman to endorse Brown's Campaign. Scott Brown is vehemently opposed to the proposed Healthcare Legislation.
Joe Lieberman has run against many of his Democratic Counterparts in the Senate over the so called Obamacare Health Care Reform Bill. Back in December, with the public option dead, Democrats revived an old proposal to expand Medicare, but Lieberman voted no. That plan was considered by a small percentage of liberals as a decent alternative to the public option leaving Lieberman at odds with Democratic Senate Leader Harry Reid.

2. I think Cool Cal greatly overestimates Lieberdick's influence.

3. Actually it would have the reverse effect
Lieberman is hated right now and an endorsement would bring out the Demcorats.

18. Can't you cross out the Liarman portion of that button?
Gore's run was definitely marred by having chosen that moron on the ticket.

5. It's Sunday. The election is Tuesday. If LIEberman was going to endorse
Brown, I think he would have done it. I don't put anything below him, but it looks like this is just rumor mongering for the sake of rumor mongering.

6. If Brown wins, Lieberman is less important.

7. God. What would the blowback be? Is it possible to fire him
for that? At least strip him of his committee chair? Incarcerate him? :evilgrin:

8. I am always waiting for Joe to make his party jumping announcement
I actually thought it would have come before now. He's trying to find the moment of maximum leverage to hurt the Dems so he can play his strongest hand with his new team members.

10. Would that help of hurt?
Mass Democrats would use this as motivation for sure - Lieberman has no support in Mass.

16. That makes no sense at all. He can kill it anytime he wants
Of course they would probably take homeland security from him. Is this a chickenshit way of killing hcr while keeping his committee? Otherwise it's illogical.
