re: Lieberman


Smart, suscpicious man e-mails:

K-Lo, I saw your bench memo on Lieberman. Not that I would ever by cynical or anything, but could it just be possible that Schumer got to Lieberman b/w last night and this morning to advise Joe that he’d been “misinterpreted”? I’m thinking of two things, (1) Isn’t Schumer now the head of the Dems Campaign Committee which recruits candidates and decides how party money is allocated for races (I seem to recall that Schumer had to agree not to run for governor in order to get that high party post in the Senate), and (2) didn’t we hear after Lieberman bolted party orthodoxy by voting to confirm Gonzales for AG that the Dems were thinking of a primary challenge against Joe in ‘06? Just wondering …
