Bloomberg, Salazar Endorse Loser Lieberman, Dem Leaders Endorse Lamont

NYC Mayor Bloomberg has endorsed Sore Loser Lieberman's run as an independent.

New York Times has a lively blog discussion going, especially in Morning Buzz. One writer asks: "Why exactly is the Mayor of New York City endorsing anyone in a CT race?"

Time to Go Joe

Support Lamont here.

Word is that Senator Ken Salazar (Dem - Colorado) has endorsed Lieberman but most Party Dems (including Hillary) are supporting Lamont -- joint statement issued by Senators Reid and Schumer.
The Democratic voters of Connecticut have spoken and chosen Ned Lamont as their nominee. Both we and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) fully support Mr. Lamont?s candidacy. Congratulations to Ned on his victory and on a race well run.

Joe Lieberman has been an effective Democratic Senator for Connecticut and for America. But the perception was that he was too close to George Bush and this election was, in many respects, a referendum on the President more than anything else. The results bode well for Democratic victories in November and our efforts to take the country in a new direction.
WP's Murray and Balz write about Lieberman's independent candidacy, chance, hurdles, hopes. One conclusion which is one of those 'from your pen to the great spirit's ears' prayers:
At a minimum, the Connecticut primary is likely to ensure that Democrats of all stripes -- those who initially supported the war and those who have opposed it -- take a more aggressive posture in combating the president and his policies at home and abroad.
