Ned vs. Joe on ABC’s This Week
From Ned Lamont:
Stephanopolous: Joe Lieberman says that you are a political chameleon and that you are taking a progressive position because that is where the opportunity is.
Lamont: I don’t think that you are a left or right to say that this war was ill-conceived from the start…
From Joe Lieberman:
Stephanopolous: People complain that you have lost touch with the people of Connecticut.
Lieberman: …well, I keep coming back.
PoliticsTV has the interview up here (Quicktime only at the moment, with Windows coming shortly.) And I’m keeping an eye on Crooks and Liars for a video posting as well (will update if and when one gets posted). I know the show was preempted for *ilson and some of the rest of the FDL crew missed it, so I wanted to give everyone a chance to see both interviews if they want.
Frankly, I think Ned Lamont did quite well. He’s clearly gotten more comfortable in his television skin (which is very difficult, take it from someone who is still working on that!), but his comfort with himself and who he is really shines through in the whole interview. And that is very effective. Joe Lieberman looks worn out — it’s been a tough campaign for everyone, but it has to have been especially difficult on Lieberman who, I think, just expected to coast to another six years and instead found himself having to fight for every inch.
It’s going to be a close race to the finish. If you can get to CT at all, please do so. GOTV on both sides is critical. I just wish I could be there with everyone to help — but I’ll be doing phone calls from home instead today. (Darn arthritis…but I can’t tell you how much it means that there are so many FDL’ers pitching in this weekend.)
