Lamont comes out on top by small marginTuesday, August 8, 2006 at 11:15 pm | Posted in News | Leave a comment
Tonight in Connecticut, anti-war candidate Ned Lamont narrowly beat three term sentator Joe Lieberman 52%-48% to win the Democratic Senate primary. Lieberman has since conceded to Lamont. The Moderate Voice has more.
I was listening to the Sean Hannity show this afternoon, and heard Hannity talk about the Connecticut primary. He opined that if Lamont were to win, then that would mean a radial shift in the Democrat Party to the far left wing. Hannity also said that if Lamont won, it would represent how Democrats are weak on terror.
I have to disagree with Hannity on the latter point. Just because a Democrat is against the war in Iraq, does not mean he/she is “weak” in the War on Terror. For instance, I’m not too thrilled with the way our invasion of Iraq turned out, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t go after Iran in a second if they were to attack us.
Additionally, this is my first post using word wrap. Looks spiffy I think. Also, thank WordPress for not losing this post when my laptop froze up a minute ago.
