I fully expect that Senator Joseph Lieberman, re-elected as an ‘Independent’ Democratic Senator in Connecticut, will at some opportune moment during the next two years shift alliance to the Republicans, thus, restoring the Senate to Republican control.  Lest it be forgotten, Lieberman was originally elected to the Senate in 1988 over a moderate Republican, Lowell Weicker, with a narrow 10,000 margin undoubtedly supplied by the fervent support of William F. Buckley, Connecticut resident and the grand father of the right wing movement in this country:

It should be no surprise to see Lieberman taking on as his spokesperson what the NY Times characterizes in the following article as an ideological chameleon:

An Ideologue for Hire Gets New Alliance
By MARK LEIBOVICH
Marshall Wittmann, Senator Joseph I. Lieberman’s new
spokesman, is one of the great ideological contortionists.

Frankly I don’t trust anyone who can waffle on about the on-going chaos created by U.S. policy in the Middle East.  Perhaps we are about to see for the first time in American history a candidate for vice president who will have run on both the Democratic and Republican tickets?
