Lieberman in Control

Joe Lieberman was clear during his campaign as an Independent that he intended to caucus with the Democrats, but today he left the door open for a move to the Republican Party.

I rather doubt Joe would make the switch -- he's very liberal on everything except the War on Terror -- but he's definitely reminding the Democrats who didn't support him that he's in control. Were Lieberman to switch which party he supports, control of the Senate would shift back to the Republicans.

Between Joe holding the final key to the Democrats' control of the Senate and Nancy Pelosi announcing she's backing John Murtha for the House Majority Leader over the current Democrat whip, Steny Hoyer...well, it's going to be an interesting two years.
