MICKEY KAUS: "So if Lieberman wins as an independent, and the Democrats pick up six seats in November, doesn't that mean Lieberman gets to decide which party controls the Senate? And if so, do the Democrats really want to take Kos' advice and piss him off?"

That's been my question all along. I understand the notion of making sure that members of your party don't stray too far from what it's supposed to mean, but if your major goal is winning back control of Congress it doesn't seem to me that targeting Lieberman makes sense. But I'm not a political strategist, so perhaps I'm missing something.

UPDATE: Joe Lieberman, then and now.
