NYT: 'Independent' Senator Lieberman begins 'complicated, occasionally clumsy tango'

Friday September 8, 2006

Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, forced to run for reelection as an independent after losing the Democratic primary to challenger Ned Lamont, has "begun a complicated, occasionally clumsy tango as he tries to woo Democrats, Republicans and unaffiliated voters without the backing of any party," according to an article slated for the front page of Saturday's edition of The New York Times.

"Since his defeat in the Aug. 8 Democratic primary, Lieberman has been seeking Democrats while appealing to Republicans with tough talk about terrorism that is similar to President Bush's," write Patrick Healy and Jennifer Media for the Times.

"He is mulling creating nonpartisan 'citizen town committees' because he must build a new voter-turnout operation from scratch," write Healy and Medina for the Times.

"And he is calibrating his language to try to appeal across party lines without seeming inconsistent or awkward -- though, at times, he does," the article continues.



"Behind every great fortune lies a great crime."
Honore de Balzac

"Democrats work to help people who need help.
That other party, they work for people who don't need help.
That's all there is to it."

~Harry S. Truman
