Lieberman Set to Lose Primary in Connecticut

On Tuesday, voters in Connecticut go to the polls to elect either Ned Lamont or Joe Lieberman as their Democratic candidate for the Senate.  Politicians on both sides of the aisle are watching this election very closely, as it will have an effect on rhetoric and politics for both the liberals and conservatives.  This election is important because it will serve as a referendum on the war in Iraq and on George Bush.

   Despite what pundits and journalists claim, the best thing that can happen to the Democratic Party is for Senator Joe Lieberman to lose his seat.  If Ned Lamont wins on Tuesday and again in November, it will change the way the Democratic party talks about the war in Iraq and will force them to stop running to the political middle.  Right now, the Democrats are directionless.  They have been scared to death to challenge this President on anything in the past six years.  Rather than take a stand, they fold to the GOP at every turn.

The Democrats have been so busy running to the middle in order to appeal to everybody, that they have forgotten what their values actually are.  When a true Democrat like Howard Dean speaks out, they leave him hanging in the wind by his lonesome.  It is really quite pathetic. 

When Bill Clinton was in office, Republicans came after him mercilessly, even when his approval rating was well over 60%.  The GOP rightfully believed that Clinton was scum and that he should be removed from office.

Democrats aren't that bright.  President Bush's approval rating has been in the 30's for months and yet they play nice.  They need to see which way the wind is blowing before they get up and fight. 

This primary will tell them without a doubt that they need to move further left.  They will need to fight George Bush and his handling of the war.  If they really want to take control of Congress at the mid-term elections, they must unite behind those two issues. 

The Democrats need to destroy George Bush.  Take the gloves off and attack him.  Be ruthless.  The majority of the country is begging for it.  This primary will show that.  Ned Lamont will win this primary by at least 10%.  Current polling puts him ahead by at least that amount and the momentum is in his direction.

Lieberman may win the seat in a three-way election come November, but Lamont will show the party on Tuesday what they need to do.
