    Connecticut Democrats are considering whether to ask Sen. Joe Lieberman to leave the party for speaking at the Republicans' convention and backing GOP presidential nominee John McCain.

    What the Connecticut democrat party thinks won't matter much to Lieberman.

    They turned on him the last time he ran for office.

    I doubt he has forgotten.

    He should leave the party. If he is a Republican he should just come out and say it. Come oput of the closet so to speak.

    That's the thing. He isn't. He still caucuses with Dems. He's no Independant. He's a Dem. But they won't have him. I'd hate to see him join the GOP just because the Dems won't allow a maverick in their ranks.

    Wonder why they didn't go after Zell Miller like this? Afraid he'd pull a pistol on them like he threatened Chris Matthews? :laugh:

    The only thing (I am aware of) that Joe has in common with the GOP is his stance on National Security (and Israel). In all other matters he is a liberal Democrat.

    You gotta love Zell...:thumbs:

    He can caucus with them all he wants but if he thinks and talks like a Republican and therefore is justifiably rejected by the Democrats he is a Republican.

    The reasons he listed at the convention for going with McCain weren't liberal views. Perhaps he's a hybrid.

    And I thought the Dems were the party of tolerance and diversity.

    Apparently not.

    They would have us believe it, but in all things un-liberal, they show their hypocrisy as usual.

    I see no reason for the Democrats in Connecticut to allow someone who is supporting a Republican for president to remain in their party regardless of diversity.

    Lieberman did not leave the Democrat party, the Democrat Party left Lieberman

    Well I don't particularly want a guy who votes 90% ultra-leftist in my party, either. Gotta be tough for Joe, being wrong on every political issue there is, right now.
