I think it is truly sad how badly BOTH The Reps and Dems are interpreting Lamont over Lieberman...
The Republicans like Sean Hannity are as lost as usual. A Primary is designed so that the members of a political party can choose the candidate they wish to support. Primaries are a regular event and are part of the political process. Just because Lamont beat Lieberman does NOT mean the end of The Democratic Party.
The Democrats are lost for different reasons on this issue. I do not think that the anti-war segment of The Democratic Party has accomplished anything other then having a candidate win one Primary.
The Democrats are NOT the anti-war party on the national level. The National Libertarian Party is the anti-war party.
The Democrats almost unanimously voted to approve the Iraq invasion and they keep voting for the funding of the war, etc. The Democratic Party has NOT actively opposed the Iraq War and that must be understood.
