I was bummed this week to learn that Senator Joe Lieberman lost the democratic primary for his Connecticut seat. I hope that when he runs as an independant he has more luck. I believe he is one of the few democrats that has a clear vision of what he wants, and actually makes sense, and follows what he believes is right, rather than caving to pressure from his fellow democrats.
This opinion piece from the Wall Street Journal does a great job of explaining why we still need Senator Lieberman, and others like him, in congress.
By the way, if you would like a great source of news, I highly recommend subscribing to the Wall Street Journal. The editorials and opinion pieces are very well written (my favorite part of the paper, actually), and it not only has world news stories, but also many social commentary articles that are quite interesting.
