Sen. Joe's loss

I wanted Joe to win. He is a fine man.

But he came much closer than expected, after some apparently foul play by the campaign of the spoiled rich kid.

He will probably win as an Independent, opening up the possibility of a Third Party candidacy with, say, Rudy Giuliani or John McCain.

An ideal solution.

Let's say that, theoretically, McCain is interested in running with Lieberman as his VP on a third-party candidacy. What would their platform be? How could they address the charges of inconsistency that would be lobbed against a ticket that had both a mostly-conservative and mostly-liberal on it (besides running a 100% foreign policy-based campaign).

I believe that the "independent" ticket would be especially unappealing on issues where it is exceedingly hard to come up with a centrist solution. The government can either allow or not allow most women to have an abortion at will. (I know that you might be able to split hairs over exactly when a woman can or cannot have one, making exceptions for rape/incest/mother's health, but I doubt that those details are important enough to stake a campaign on).

Sorry to disagree, but I can see nothing good that energizes the Moveon.org, George Soros leftists. Except for a complete desertion of reasonable people from the Democratic party.
