Down to the wire in Connecticut

with Ned Lamont in the lead according to most polls.
Ah but the polls can be wrong y'know.
It will be interesting to see what happens at any rate.

No matter who wins the primary down there tomorrow, Lieberman or Lamont, get ready for a lot of facile comparisons to the 1968 New hampshire Presidential Primary and a lot of eye-rolling commentary from the usual suspects about the "vitriolic democratic anti war left" etc etc...
It has been a long hot summer with naught to report but a lot of bad war news from abroad, a nice juicy senatorial primary fight in Connecticut plus a chance to lecture about the left's alleged futile anger, has got the punditariat salivating.

So we shall see...
