Ned Lamont

A lot of blogs are talking about Ned Lamont's primary challenge against Joe Lieberman. The link above goes to a site called LamontBlog, which is an unofficial blog promoting Lamont's candidacy. This particular entry gives excerpts of an interview with Lamont.

From this interview, and from the interest he's getting from the blogs, it seems like Lamont might be the real deal, a chance to get a real Dem in that seat and get rid of the Republican boot-licker Lieberman. If I were in Connecticut, I'd vote for Mr. Lamont in the primary. Though one wonders about his chances in the general--much of Lieberman's success comes from his support base among Republicans. Can Lamont win the seat without that support base? Honest question--I don't know.
