Trenchant Analysis
Craig Crawford regularly writes about Congress. He's has a blurb out today warning everyone about Boltin' Joe changing parties:
That means Republicans would have to threaten filibusters and other obstacles to force passage of a new resolution allowing for such a switchover [of majority control in the Senate].

So while Lieberman cannot directly play kingmaker, that is quite a monkey wrench he is holding.
Excuse me. But a Lieberman switch isn't needed for the Republicans to use filibusters and Senate rules to block legislation. They're doing that right now without the majority. Unlike the Democrats, the Republicans have been very comfortable using the filibuster already this session despite their condemnation of the tactic when they had the majority.

I still say, go Joe, go. Where the correct label, Republican.
