Yeah, I know. Another vanity. But I'm wondering...any chance he might flip?
Flip to R?
Nope. Just be glad he's a bit hawkish.
IBTZ. No flipping vanities.
No. He's having too much fun.
No chance at all.
Depends on who asks him to be their running mate in '08. But, no, probably not.
I was entertaining the thought yesterday but I would refuse his request now. I WANT the DEMS to have BOTH houses... LET THEM SEE WHAT THEY CAN DO. THEY CANT DELIVER, THROW THE BUMS OUT!
I don't get that either. The republicans helped him get elected. And his fellow dems threw him out of the boat. Why would he vote with them?
He even said he will vote how he feels would be the best vote, not just along party lines. Sounds like an independent to me.
I would welcome him with open arms... if for nothing more than the pure comedy of watching the moonbats react.
And give up his catbird seat? Nope. What I'm curious about is whether he'll stop supporting Israel.
We could pray.
naww..he goes to DC beholdent to no party in particular. He will vote with us as much as he will against us.
(Cd)(I) but never (R)
He will only hint at it to get the Dems to give him what he wants...now that he has juice.
Not if he's sane. The GOP eats their own. He'd be too conservative for them.
He will surprise.
Yes... to the Dems...
That is why I was entertaining the thought...
Here's another acronym...WTF?
Sure there's a chance. There's also a chance nancy pelosi will flip. They're probably very similar.
I can't see Lieberman flipping unless the democrats pass a joint resolution for the destruction of Israel and then a massive appropriations bill earmarked for Al Qu'aida.
Because he is a Democrat, and he is being true to his party, even if the current crop of dummies forced him out to make an anti-war statement. And when he runs for re-election again in six years, I'd bet it will be as a Democrat again.
Cuz he's a hooooooor.
It is definitely possible, but I don't think so. If he did though, the 'rats would scream bloody murder. It would be a spectacle for the ages.
Put down the beer and step away from the computer.
He has stated that there is nothing the Republicans can offer him to get him to switch.
No, because aside from the Loons convinced themselves of, he's a loyal Liberal Democrat.
But he will be the swing vote in the Congress and at least when it comes to the WOT, that will be a far better development then had Lamont won.
The entertainment value alone would be a thing to behold.
Boy, would that be sweet!
BUT, remember the old saying about the "snowball in hell"?
Seriously, I would just absolutely LOVE to watch the circus if he DID switch!!
So you think there's a chance.
He might, depends on the RAT policy in Iraq.
Botched joke. ;~)
I doubt it, but hopefully we can get him to help us on certain things. I expect massive gridlock in the next couple years, as the Senate can't do much without a 2/3 majority, and some of the incoming Dems in both houses aren't nearly as insane as Pelosi and company. A lot of the repubs that lost were RINOs that weren't always helpful to our cause anyway.
Not bloody likely, unless Harry Reid turns into an even bigger idiot than he already is and strips him of his seniority. Even then probably not--though he'd be one case where a RINO in the Senate would be a welcomed development.
Last night, in an interview, he said he feels "liberated". It sort of went by in the heat of the moment, but I thought, the old SOB, he's got them all right where he wants them - why would he give that up? LOL.
Today on Hannity, he said he promised already to vote with the Dems on organization, but freely admitted that the tenor of his old relationships had changed - when Sean pressed him as to whether or not he felt betrayed by the likes of Kerry and Kennedy.
He's ticked at them, but he's too good a politician to come out and call them names. He's a lib, but he may turn out to be a good ally in the WOT.
No. He doesn't strike me as the vindictive type. Plus his wife is uber-liberal. He wouldn't be able to go home. Or he'd be divorced.
Sen. Campbell, a Native American from CO shook up the Dims when he switched to Republican so it's possible. Besides, Lieberman has more guts than a lot of Republicans.
And you figure if he decided not to vote with the Dems, but stayed independent, that still gives the Dems. the Senate by a 50-49 vote. Remember when Jeffords left the Republican party, it gave the Dems. a 50-49 advantage and control.
Any DINO senators who could switch to the Repubs?
Are there any conservative or moderate Democrats left?
I hope not, I don't want any more liberals. That's how we got into this mess to begin with.
Maybe if we get off our asses and do something during the last four months of the campaign instead of talking about polls and October surprises everyday, we wouldn't have to talk about crazy stuff like this.
Not me. We don't need the party moving any further left. He'll be a far worse thorn in the moonbats' sides as an independent whom they're forced to caucus with.
I think if John Mclame asked him, he might.
None. Its over :(
