Clinton to Support Lieberman

Sphere: Related Content

Bill Clinton has been the only Democrat with any national success in the last two decades. Regardless of what you think of him, he is a hell of a politician.

Interestingly, the implosion of the Democratic party may just come down to this decision made by "Slick Willy"

U.S. Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman is rolling out the big gun in his increasingly close primary battle with Greenwich Democrat Ned Lamont.

Former President Bill Clinton is slated to campaign on behalf of the three-term incumbent Monday in Waterbury, Lieberman's campaign spokeswoman said today.

...Clinton, in a recent speech at the Aspen Institute conference, defended Lieberman and his staunch support for the war in Iraq. He questioned why antiwar Democrats are seeking to oust a fellow Democrat, saying that instead of seeking to retire Republicans they were pursuing "the nuttiest strategy I ever heard in my life."

Ned Lamont has pulled even with Lieberman in CT and the Kos/Hamsher wing of the donks party is elated. Clinton on the other hand sees that following that wing and electing Lamont will only embolden the group that is destroying the party that Clinton resurrected.

I hope Lamont wins and Clinton is rebuffed. If this is the case, the country as a whole will get a view of the real anti-war agenda and they will be exposed as the anti-American, win at all costs tribe they really are.

Update: More evidence of the schism developing in the party here.
