As predicted in yesterday’s blog, the New York Times has come out for Joe Lieberman’s oponent in the Connecticut primary, Ned Lamont.
Ned’s campaign has been extremely good so far. Slick, young and vibrant campaigning on a big issue for the Democratic Party, it shows how those who oppose the Bush agenda on Iraq can fight a positive, appealing campaign.
The Editorial says, “Mr. Lamont, a wealthy businessman from Greenwich, seems smart and moderate, and he showed spine in challenging the senator while other Democrats groused privately. He does not have his opponent’s grasp of policy yet. But this primary is not about Mr. Lieberman’s legislative record. Instead it has become a referendum on his warped version of bipartisanship, in which the never-ending war on terror becomes an excuse for silence and inaction. We endorse Ned Lamont in the Democratic primary for Senate in Connecticut.“
