    Amazing - the man who ran for VP with Al Gore - Joe Lieberman is being run out on a rail by his party.

    Its just not right. Joe is one of the last intellectually honest politicians who votes what he feels and not what his party wants. As a result he might lose his gig.

    Washington needs more people like Joe Lieberman - not less.

    In end it will burn the democrats further. I can see Lieberman hooking up with McCain in some way

    I'd vote for a McCain-Lieberman ticket in a heartbeat.

    What would be their slogan? "We're better war-mongers than Bush-Cheney."

    McCain-Bush would be very strong, too

    If you want a darkhorse pick for McCain's Veep, go with South Carolina's Lindsey Graham. Young guy, funny, good with the press, Southern, moderate, utterly loyal, and McCain loves him like a son.

    He's not a big name, and it's just a hunch, but hey, I like to gamble.

    So did you end up nailing that waitress at the Olive Garden in Arlington?

    You'll kindly note the distinction between a double down sort of gamble and a Russian roulette sort of gamble.

    Lindsey Graham would be a fine choice. He is better known than you think.

    When in house he co-lead impeachment hearings against Clinton.

    Graham's not getting anywhere near a Republican presidential ticket.

    Google his name and "teh ghey" and you'll have your answer why.

    PLEASE NOTE: I'm not saying he is. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it, if he is. I'm simply saying the Republican Party isn't pinning its presidential aspirations on a ticket where the veep might have to face questions about his sexuality.

    Me, too. A dream ticket for all moderates who live for a day without partisan politics ... a day we'll never see.

    Not sure about that, only because he's hugely popular in South Carolina, which -- and please don't give me shit about this -- but which, in my mind, is not a state known for its tolerance. (See: Confederate flag debate.) If he can win big there, he can win big anywhere.*

    *The similarity between that last line and a Broadway show tune is, I can assure you, purely coincidental.
