MN-Sen: Lieberman Defends Coleman

Oh, to be in the room when Schumer heard about this. From The Hill:
Lieberman, the 2000 Democratic vice presidential nominee who caucuses with Democrats and gives them their two-seat Senate majority, disputes partisan attacks that Coleman conducted inadequate oversight of the Iraq war as the top Republican on the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations (PSI).
"Any suggestion Sen. Coleman stymied Democrats' investigations into Iraq-related matters is unfair and unfounded," Lieberman wrote this weekend in an op-ed in the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Joe better savor every last ounce of this garbage now, because after the election he'll likely have the less political capital than he's had in decades. I know some wanted a more immediate ousting from Democratic leaders, but I actually prefer things this way. Joe's advocacy isn't going to help Republican in any measurable way (McCain least of all). Instead, he'll just dig himself into a deeper hole.
It's crucial we elect as many Democratic Senators as possible - let's do everything we can to get to a caucus of 60...WITHOUT counting Lieberman.
