Last night Senator Joe Lieberman lost the Democratic nomination for US Senator from Connecticut. Lieberman was first elected in 1988.
In losing the nomination Lieberman announced that he will run as an Independent. In 2008 we need a candidate, like Lieberman, that will not be afraid to leave his/her party and run as a third party if the cause arises.
If the Republicans run a liberal candidate in 2008, I say that a third party candidate is the answers.
A third party conservative candidate will not take votes away from the Republican Party, the liberal candidate will be cause of votes not be given to the Republican party.
