'A Terrible Tug' for Democrats

David Broder today writes on Lieberman's likely defeat in his Connecticut primary next week and zeroes in on Lieberman's Iraq war support as the principal cause of his political jeopardy. Little mention by Broder of the conventional wisdom some have circulated that Lieberman is the victim of angry liberal bloggers. Little mention, that is, as Broder still manages to end his column by characterizing the Lamont support as "elitist insurgents" who usually suffer defeat once "...a broader public weighs in." We'll see. Remember, the "broader public" is overwhelmingly with the Lamont anti-war view and the time for a change cause.
