I don't want to gib the Lamont / Lieberman subject, mostly because I've exhausted interest after these two threads I posted on from Austin blogs that supported Lieberman.
It's time for Democrats who distrust President Bush to acknowledge that he will be the commander in chief for three more critical years and that in matters of war, we undermine presidential credibility at our nation's peril. - Sen. Lieberman (original video here)So much for checks and balances. The response to Joe's supposed efficacy as a centrist can be summarized as follows:
- "Bipartisanship only works when the other side compromises, too. Otherwise it's just capitulation." -- mcjoan as referenced by Digby's Hullabaloo.
- "You can't counteract divisiveness with compliance." - TexasHippie post on Austin Centrist.
