Connecticut Democrats Back Off Lieberman Censure, Cite His Support From Obama

batsignal2tg7.jpgMark Pazniokas, in the Hartford Courant:

In Connecticut, it may have taken some energy from a campaign to have the Democratic State Central Committee censure Lieberman. The committee is supposed to consider the censure Dec. 17.

"I can tell you, certainly, that the fact that President-elect Obama comes and says he wants him back in the caucus has made some people step back," said Nancy DiNardo, the Democratic state chairwoman.

Lieberman’s camp was happy to amplify the sentiment. One Lieberman supporter on Capitol Hill said, "There is no taste for retribution at this time."

Who knew Obama was a Connecticut resident?

Meanwhile, we’ve collected 30,000 signatures for our "Just Say No to Joe" petition that will be delivered to Democratic Senators this week.
