Sen. Joseph Lieberman, Connecticut Independent
Everyone will be keeping a close eye on the independent and his relationship with home-state Democrats. Lieberman’s vigorous support for ending Don’t Ask Don’t Tell has led some to wonder whether he is trying to make amends with Connecticut Democrats who voted for his primary opponent in 2006. On the right, Linda McMahon has signaled that she’s not tired of running for public office. In Washington, Lieberman has found himself to be the most popular lunchmate, as Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell compete for his affection. For now, Lieberman seems most comfortable playing footsie with the Democrats.
