Columnist suggests Bush could use Lieberman to change Senate's balance


While much of Washington kept rapt attention on the health of Democratic Senator Tim Johnson of South Dakota, an article in Salon today speculated that President George W. Bush could tip the Senate to a Republican majority via other means -- namely, appointing Senator Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut to be America's next Ambassador to the UN.

Salon political columnist Joe Conason notes that if Lieberman were to leave the Senate, Connecticut's Republican Governor would be able to appoint a Republican to fill his seat.

What a sneaky, sneaky thing to do. Plus, Liberman would be horrible in the UN.

I can see Joey Boy taking the post, just to get back at the Democrats in Conn.

It's amazing what a vicious thing politics is when you play for keeps.
