Lieberman(R)

Posted on 11/08/2006 6:29:28 PM PST by Raebie

Yeah, I know. Another vanity. But I'm wondering...any chance he might flip?

Nope. Just be glad he's a bit hawkish.

As much chance of that as of a stop to the vanities on Free Republic today.

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.

Not if he's sane. The GOP eats their own. He'd be too conservative for them.

Joe will be interesting to watch. He will not be in the mood to play ball with anyone. He WILL be independent. He's a changed man and has made more than a few Republican friends this year.

He will surprise.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.
