Sometimes, with all the rhetoric and spin that gets tossed around so freely during a hotly contested election, we lose sight of what's important.
Here's a powerful reminder.
Stem cell research promises to find cures for countless diseases and afflictions. George W. Bush firmly opposes ANY public funding of stem cell research. Joe Lieberman supposedly is in favor of stem cell research, but his policy of rolling over for EVERY SINGLE item on the George W. Bush agenda belies that claim.
Almost certainly the issue will end up in front of the Supreme Court. Joe Lieberman's vote for cloture on discussion of Sam Alito's confirmation hearing is exactly the same as a vote FOR this ultra-conservative pro-Bush pro-torture pro-strip-searching-children anti-choice judge.
And can you guess on which side of the stem cell research argument Sam Alito will fall?
Ned Lamont has stated repeatedly, and as recently as last Tuesday on video (available here) exactly where he stands on issues like stem cell research.
