"It's something I'm interested in,'' Murphy said while standing outside Fitzgerald's Foods as darkness closed in late this afternoon.I'm sure there's quite a few CT Democrats who would love to see Congressman Murphy run against that embarrassing political albatross known as Joe Lieberman. I make it no secret that I detest nearly everything about our (for now) senior senator, and I look forward to the day when he vacates that seat with almost as much anticipation as I held for George Bush to finally leave the White House.
There are several possible candidates for the Democratic nomination, especially when you consider that Lieberman will likely again be forced to run as an independent candidate. But, keep in mind that this time around the GOP probably won't cowardly stab it's own candidate in the back, like it did to Alan Schlesinger in 2006, so Lieberman won't be able to count on the massive Republican voting block he got then.
It's gonna take a real Democrat to win this time around! And I think Chris Murphy has all the qualities needed to be a good Senator for both Connecticut and for the nation.
Chris, please make the announcement soon so we can get started on winning our seat back.
