One thing I'll say about Senator Joe Lieberman...

he sure has mastered the arts of slipping quietly over the side and dog-paddling himself to political safety.
His excuse for bailing on health care reform is nigh masterful; “I’m afraid we’ve got to think about putting a lot of that off until the economy’s out of recession’’.
Normally you'd want to pass health care reform now during a recession to cover those 35 million fellow citizens who haven't a shred of coverage, but for Joe and his ilk it is political coverage they crave, thick enough so they can run and cringe behind Charles Grassley amidst thr GOP's gothic ruins.
In short, it was vintage Joe Lieberman, he even waited to announce his latest act of spinelessness until the President got to Martha's Vineyard for vacation. You can't beat a record like that you just can't.
