Poor Joe Lieberman. If only the islamist bombing plot had been foiled this weekend instead of this morning, he would have won the CT primary.

I know it is becoming more and more naive, but I'd still like to think the CT primary voters would have stuck with a strong national security candidate with the foiled terrorist bombing fresh on their minds.

On a positive note, I know I am excited for Lieberman's candidacy. I'm still a little sore from his flip-flopping during the VPOTUS run, but that can be chalked up to supporting the ticket versus changing his principles. (Ed: But didn't he change his principles to support the ticket?)

NYC mayor, uber-social liberal RINO Mike Bloomberg can out foursquare in Liberman's corner. As much as his social liberalism bothers me, I find myself still respecting Mayor Bloomberg.

His endorsement will help the soft-handed whites of Fairfield County vote for Lieberman in the fall.

(Although I still can't believe seeing wimpy Ned Lamont standing in front of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton on election night hasn't made at least 10,000 of his primary supporters scream, "What have I done!?")

From the latest Sienna College poll:

"In prospective 2008 presidential races, former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and Senator John McCain would both beat either Senator Hillary Clinton or former Vice President Al Gore. Giuliani beats Clinton 48-42 percent and Gore 48-44 percent. McCain top Clinton 46-42 percent and Gore 47-44 percent.

“Two formidable Republicans have the early edge over two heavyweight Democrats in what has long been seen as one of the ‘bluest’ states in the nation.,” Greenberg said. “And the fact that Gore does better than Hillary against either Rudy or McCain will certainly put the pressure on New York’s junior senator to try and run up a big victory in her re-election battle this fall.”

A month or so ago, I had a heated discussion with a buddy of mine about our junior senator's chances of winning a POTUS election.

I said it was impossible as she would get crushed in the Electoral College tabulations with blue states like Pennsylvania going against her and red states remaining red.

He believed otherwise as women would vote for her.

Only a Democrat would think gender trumps all other qualifications. (And race for that matter!)
