The man who should have been senator
I made this video immediately following the 2006 general election, which Joe Lieberman won by cleverly exploiting the Republican voters' willingness to betray their own senate candidate. But Ned Lamont is the man who should have become our senator.
Yesterday, Joe announced he would retire at the end of this term. I firmly believe this was due in large part to Ned's courage and convictions that led him to provide Connecticut's Democrats with permission to question Joe Lieberman's beliefs, loyalties, and motives.
Ned absolutely would have made a great senator, and I can't help but think what might have been different today if we had his voice representing us for the last four years. It's definitely our loss that we'll never know.
Ned Lamont deserves our praise and our thanks.
