GOP to back Lieberman?

The Hartford Courant:
It's been the subject of whispered conversations among top Republican officials for the past month. Now, U.S. Rep. Chris Shays, R-4th District, has let slip the secret: GOP officials have discussed cross-endorsing Democratic Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman this fall.

In an interview Monday with the editorial board of The Advocate of Stamford, Shays said he intends to vote for Lieberman and is encouraging a Republican endorsement of the three-term senator.

The remark was not immediately reported by The Advocate, but it set off a flurry of calls among Republicans who have been gauging support for the idea among GOP candidates, including Gov. M. Jodi Rell and U.S. Reps. Rob Simmons, R-2nd District, and Nancy L. Johnson, R-5th District.

Good idea. Lieberman's not a bad guy at all. Neither is McCain though.

Question: do you think this is a Republican tactic, to try and pull attention (and votes) from Hillary?

Much like Kerry in 02, Hillary will be running without a true challenge. Her war chest will grow and her senate campaign will venture into such venues as Virgina, Ohio, Iowa and New Hampshire.

This will go along well with the release of a video of bush follies set to music. Highlights to include the carrier landing and the newly released video of the Katrina briefing and story time in Florida.
