Lieberman's day of reckoning

The Senate Democratic caucus votes today on Lieberman's fate. I really have no insight other than it seems that many want to forgive Joe for calling them all traitors on national television from the RNC Convention and campaigning against them nationally with Gov. Palin.

I'd strip him of all chairmanships, but leave his status in the caucus up to him and couldn't care less if he leaves. 57 or 59 doesn't much matter in the great scheme of things. Conn is a very blue state and his caucusing with Republicans will not sit well back home.

Finally, Chair of Homeland Security is an extremely significant post and Lieberman's refusal to conduct any hearings investigating the Bush administration not just in Iraq but on Katrina and an entire host of domestic failures and scandals is reason enough to strip him of his chairmanship.

Everything else Joe has done to betray those he calls friends is really just icing on the cake.
