Hope for Connecticut; How about New York?

From the NY Times (via Polizeros):
Former Gov. Lowell P. Weicker Jr. on Monday criticized Senator Joseph I. Lieberman's continued support of the war in Iraq and said that if no candidate challenged the senator on the issue in the 2006 election, he would consider running.

"When you've become the president's best friend on the war in Iraq, you should not be in office, especially if you're in the opposing party," Mr. Weicker, 74, said in a phone interview from his home in Essex, Conn. "I'm going to do everything I can to see that Joe Lieberman does not get a free pass."

He said that Mr. Lieberman, a Democrat, currently had no challengers, either from within his party or from Republicans, in his campaign for a fourth term. Mr. Weicker said he believed that no Republican would challenge Mr. Lieberman on the war.
Weicker was a moderate/liberal Republican senator from 1971 to 1989, losing his seat to Holy Joe in the 1988 election. He later ran for governor and won as an independent.

The biggest sellout Dumbocrat in the country and the only politician with the guts to take him on, in a blue state, no less, is a 74-year-old former Republican? Whatever it takes. Go Lowell!!

So--any good anti-war Dems or Republicans next door in New York willing to take on the second biggest sellout Dumbocrat--Hillary Clinton?

Kind of makes me wonder--was Holy Joe a mole in the Gore campaign in 2000? He certainly didn't add any excitement to a campaign that desperately needed some, and he was worse than useless in the recount battle.
