Lieberman and Obama

I think Glenn Greenwald is right that Lieberman’s fate should be decided by the senators without any arm-twisting from Obama—so that the Senate can get used to being responsible for something once again—although if anyone asks Obama his opinion I don’t see why he shouldn’t give it. This isn’t Chief Justice Burger chatting with President Nixon about Court business.

Keep in mind, if and when they leave Lieberman in charge of homeland security and government business, that his covering-up was not just for the Bushists, but also for Jay Rockefeller, Nancy Pelosi, Jane Harmon, et al.

Dick Durbin working against or on behalf of Lieberman is unbecoming, though, if he is doing it in lieu of his junior senator. Chris Dodd is one thing, he's the co-Lieberman from Connecticut; but the co-Obama is something else.

Still, I'm not going to lose much sleep over this stuff. Maybe just a little sleep.
