Lieberman and LaMont

The picture on the news said it all -- Ned LaMont, surrounded by a crowd of his supporters chanting "bring them home", got the Connecticut democratic party's vote to run for senator over one of the last principled statesmen in the U.S. Congress.

There have been attempts to cast this as "voter mood" and extrapolate it to the country and predict what it means for November -- but what this really shows is the mood of partisan democrats in Connecticut. Can anyone really say they're suprised?

One thing it does show is that partisan democrats in Connecticut are in favor of declaring victory and leaving -- leaving the Iraqi people in the lurch once again.
