What's Next in Connecticut?

Lots of post-mortem commentary in Left Blogistan about the election results in Connecticut...and the future of Joe Lieberman.

I think people should calm down and give the Senator time to come to terms with the reality of the situation. He promoted the war out of deep personal convictions and he has paid a heavy price. Politics is one rough sport!

My guess is that if his showing is weak in the first major poll he'll just bow out. From my vantage point it looks like an almost impossible fight. Of course I could be wrong.

Be bowing out graciously Lieberman will guarantee himself a major role in the upcoming Democratic Administration. Maybe Secretary of State.
