Lieberman Holds The Catbird Seat

It seems indisputable that Joe Lieberman is the most powerful man in the Senate, at least in many important respects. He’ll caucus with the Dems, but as this piece makes pretty clear his indebtedness to the Democratic Party is minimal (only a quarter of CT Dems voted for him; he didn’t take Reid’s call but did take Sue Collins). Basically, he’s a gang of one now.
