Sen. Joe Lieberman (R-Conn.)?

Austin Bay is reporting the Senator Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.) may run as an independent in the upcoming 2006 Senatorial-campaign season if he does not have the support of the Democratic-machine in the primaries.

It has also been suggested that Lieberman run as the Republican candidate in the Fall if he is rejected in the Democratic primary. Perhaps nothing would demonstrate the bankruptcy of Democratic electoral politics than having the Democratic Party's 2000 VP-candidate run as a Republican in 2006 for his Senate seat. While the Connecticut GOP might want to run some un-named "businessman", they might be wise in reconsidering and placing patriotism...and pragmatism...over ideological-purity and offer Lieberman their ballot-spot.
