The aftermath of the US mid-terms

Joe Lieberman of Connecticut is key to the Dems having a majority in the Senate, and the Gray Lady (sic) notes that he is very much flavour of the month in DC.

Having done a Ken Livingstone of sorts, that is fail to get the Dem nomination, run as an independent and won, the Dem grandees are falling over themselves to suck up to him. Among those who had backed Lamont against him were Kerry and Clinton (H). As Lieberman jr noted 'These would be many of the same good friends “who were happy to leave my dad by the side of the road”'.

Lieberman is in an enviable position, and I wonder whether he will lay down his ambition and ego for the good of the party, or will work this situation to his advantage? Given he will be in his late sixties by the time of the next election, if I were him I would spend the next six years playing the role of Eastwood in 'A Fistful of Dollars': "The Rojos on one side, the Baxters on the other and me right here in the middle".

He should be true to himself and his electorate and stay Independent, people admire that kind of true grit.
