A Dispatch From New Haven
Grundy Mere, why do you support Lamont?
Ok, Its more that I hate Lieberman and have for a long time. I remember with the Clarence Thomas nomination Lieberman waited to vote til the last minute and then voted against Thomas only after he saw that he would be confirmed anyway. That explains how he voted 90% of the time with the democrats. He only voted that way if he could be sure his vote was not needed by the Republicans. Lamont is very inexperienced but will be a reliable moderately liberal vote. Also I doubt that he has any higher ambitions (although who knows the depths of anyone's self-delusions) which could free him up to be more ethical, maybe.
