Loserman is forgiven

Posted By on Tue, Nov 18, 2008 at 12:25 PM

The Senate Democratic caucus today allowed Sen. Joe Lieberman to keep his committee chairmanship. Vote was 42-13, TPM said. More here.

The vote was secret. I've asked the offices of Sens. Pryor and Lincoln for comments.

UPDATE: Lincoln and Pryor voted with the majority.

Pryor said: While I was disappointed with Joe’s actions during the campaign season, I agree with President-elect Obama that there is no need to hold grudges and it’s time to move on.”

Lincoln said: “Like others in our caucus, I was disappointed in Senator Lieberman’s handling of the campaign.  But as President-elect Obama has said, now is the time to move forward.  Our country faces some extraordinary challenges, and our caucus is as united as we’ve ever been to address those issues head on.”

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
