Bad news, Good news
The incredibly bad news is that Joe Lieberman was apparently right when he said last July:
I don't believe the American people are going to elect for president in 2004, post 9/11, in an unsettled world, a candidate who has been opposed to the use of military power against a brutal dictator like Saddam Hussein.

The good news, such as it is, is that it won't be Lieberman.

The whole process just makes me ill. The Republican media has played the Democrats masterfully. By pretending that Dean was a liberal and giving him front-runner status (magazine covers, etc.), they pulled a lot of supporters away from the truly progressive anti-war candidate, Kucinich. In the process, they also marginalized Kucinich, suggesting that Dean was as far left as the Dems could go and still have a chance (how pathetic is that?). Then, after building Dean up to inevitable status, they squashed him like a bug. In his place we have the pro-war, dull, stands-for-nothing Kerry, from whom corporate America has nothing to fear.
