Sources: Lieberman Will Not Run for Re-Election

Sources are stating that Connecticut independent Senator Joseph Lieberman, will not run for re-election next year. The 2000 Vice Presidential Democratic candidate, remains unpopular with much of the liberal base for his consistent support of the Iraq War and John McCain for President in 2008.

If he had chosen to run for re-election, Lieberman would have faced a crowded Democratic field. On Tuesday, Connecticut Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz announced her intention to run, and Rep. Chris Murphy also may enter the Democratic primary contest.

He was one of the best members of the Senate, and I will miss him if these reports are true. He spoke with clarity that many did not even comprehend on issues of national security. I can only hope he decides to run.
