rumor on The Hill -- Rummy out, Lieberman in

that's what i've heard.

of course, i've heard that Cheney was going to resign due to the Valarie Plame thing (which might still happen).

but you heard it here first, if it happens.

and thank god we're finally rid of him.

Not really dude this has been rumoured for weeks.


But call me old-fashioned shouldn't Lieberman have the decency to formally switch parties first? I mean everything he says seems to be totally in agreement with Bush.

yes, but it's actually going to happen now.

and, no, presidents -- good ones, at least -- will often have people from other parties in their Cabinets.

I hope he joins the Republicans. Good riddance and don't let the door hit you on your way out.

He's NOT going toi join the Republicans, at least as Warlord. That is EXACTLY why Bush would sppoint him. With a Dem at the helm in Iraq, it woulds cuase a fatal split in the Dem party. Any opposition to Bush wouold be hypocriitcal.

Wouldn't be surprised. Democrats tend to emphasize personal conscience over party unity, which is why Lieberman can be so outspoken as he is. Republicans, on the other hand, tend to be the reverse, which is why moderate Republicans tend to bite their tongue more than being outspoken.

Jim Jeffords says "Hi!" And to a lesser extent, McCain, Hagel, Snowe, Collins, Specter, Graham, and Chafee say too. Although they aren't muzzled, they don't need to be particularly outspoken. Because the White House, Frist, McConnell, etc will come straight to THEM when things get tight. Maybe the whole lot of them should just join the party of personal conscience.

I'll see you Jim Jeffords and raise you Zell Miller. At least Jeffords bothered to actually *leave* the party before he started bashing it.

And short of Lincoln Chafee and maybe Olympia Snowe, I'm not terribly impressed. McCain, above all, disappoints me. For such the "rebel," he's still a reliable trumpet for the Bush Administration on television and on the campaign trails. I often think he takes one step forward and two steps back on his way to work.
