Give Us A Joe, Please

Joes are important these days. During the campaign, it was Joe the Gaffer versus Joe the Plumber. Since the election, there is a new cup of Joe with the morning paper -- Senator Joe Lieberman.

The Moderate Voice (aptly named, given the topic) explains the drama and intrigue. The pertinent questions include whether President-elect Obama will punish Lieberman for having supported Senator McCain, whether Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid will allow Lieberman to retain his chairmanship of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, and what Lieberman will do in response.

The Connecticut Senator could caucus with Senate Republicans, as Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell wants. Let's hope McConnell succeeds in persuading Lieberman. Another Joe would help take away the ache that still pounds in Republican heads since the election.

The left-wing illuminati aren't holding grudges are they? Powell endorsed their candidate, but the GOP aren't kicking him out or turning the other way.
