Some Democrats have sniped at Joe Lieberman for not grilling the Bush administration hard enough as head of the homeland security committee.
He gets to keep this job.
Democrats have (mostly) offered praise for his positions on the Environment and Public Works Committee, where he has criticized the Bush administration’s global warming policies.
He loses that job.
I’ll have more about the elections and other congressional silliness over the next few days – had to come off the Obama high before I could speak coherently. LOL.
Lieberman literally knows too much. Had a junior senator pulled such a stunt, he’d a been cast to the curb. Lieberman keeps his Chairmanship? This is a clear example of Washington politics…they’re all in bed with each other.
Obama, who I have a great deal of respect, is loading up on Washington insiders for his cabinet. Suddenly “change” is starting to resemble “Clinton [era]” more and more.
Oh well…anything is better than Bush and his prodigy John McCain. And after all isn’t that what American democracy is all about? It’s not about change or voting for the party you believe in… it’s about voting in the lesser of two evils.
