Fighting Joe Lieberman Is Back! And That Makes the Democrats' Left Wing Nervous

Instead of going quietly away, Joe Lieberman has unapologetically returned to his core beliefs, has adhered to pursuit of victory in Iraq, and is leading Ned Lamont by huge margins in his independent campaign for re-election to the U.S. Senate. I have no illusions that Senator Lieberman views himself as anything other than a Democrat, but in today's Opinion Journal, Daniel Henniger speculates that the Democrats may have created their own party's version of Senator John McCain, a maverick who cannot be depended upon to adhere to the party line. If the Democrats are ever to vere back to the middle and start winning national elections, they will have to follow Lieberman's example, even if they refuse to say they're sorry for abandoning him in favor of the candidate of the defeatist left.
