I hope history doesn't label Joe Lieberman America's 21st century Cassandra, because a man this eloquent and serious deserves better. I hope he can find solace in having stuck to his convictions, no matter how unpopular; it may be the only comfort he finds in being a one-man minority, which seems to be where his former partymates are pushing him. Though John McCain could probably keep him company, since more and more members of both parties are falling over themselves searching for just the right way to surrender without actually seeming to surrender. How nuanced.
