Lieberman gets booed

Just as Lieberman's opponent Ned Lamont picks up steam by hiring "Rick Melita, who has 25 years of experience in Connecticut local and union politics and field organizing" as his field director, Lieberman received some round boos from a Democratic audience last night [VIDEO].

According to CTblogger, whose full post will come a bit later, "the boos DID NOT ALL COME FROM THE LAMONT TABLES. Personally, I was shocked with the amount of boos Joe received but if anyone says that the boos all came from Lamont's camp, then they're being dishonest (at the least)."

Noting that this "was supposed to be Joe's night," CTblogger watched as "the mood changed" at the mere mention of Lieberman's name. From vice-presidential candidate to weighing the option of running as an independent should he lose the primary to a nobody. That's a fall of Eden-ian proportions. (MyDD, ConnecticutBlog)
