I don't think history is going to look favorably upon Mr. Lieberman. It is hard to believe he has been driven by anything more than his over-sized ego. I can respect people who have opposed this, and people who support it - but someone who has manipulated the process strictly for his own gain?
Mr. Lieberman could not be happier. He is right where he wants to be - at the center of the political aisle, the center of the Democrats' efforts to win 60 votes for their sweeping health care legislation. For the moment, he is at the center of everything - and he loves it.
