Reid on Lieberman

Without prompting, Reid offered this explanation on Lieberman at the Progressive Media Summit:

What were we going to do with Joe Lieberman? I know how to count votes. That’s been my occupation since 1998. One vote in the Senate means a lot. I was upset with some of the things he said in the campaign. I made a decision along with Barack Obama. I’m not going to apologize for anyone for the vote Joe Lieberman gives us. he’s with us on everything but the war. Overwhelmingly my caucus thought it was the right thing to do.
