Just recently I asked someone for how Lieberman’s election was currently playing out among the rank and file of Connecticut’s voters. The response was unexpected.

Their feeling was that he is primarily concerned about Isreal. The defense of Isreal is his main agenda. The war is a method to those means.

Locally he was perceived as a good guy. He got strong marks for standing up to Clinton. He was percieved as more stable than either other candidate. At least they knew with him, what to expect.
