Don't Worry, We Keep the Senate

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

With President-elect Obama's announcement that he will resign his Senate seat on Sunday, you may be concerned that Lieberman will jump over to the waiting arms of the Republicans and cost us the Senate majority.

The way some might spin it, Obama resigns Sunday, Biden resigns Monday, Joe jumps Tuesday, and before any replacements can be named, the GOP steals control back, consorts with Cheney (who should be packing up the dungeon) and they make all sorts of mischief.


First, as Matt has referred to a number of times before, this isn't going to happen.

Second, the incoming Obama administration is smart. They would neither take a risk nor make that sort of error. We hold the Senate.

You'll probably see something about it, because the right wing is angry. Very angry.
