Joe Lieberman: Man in the Middle

When Joe Lieberman endorsed John McCain and spoke at the Republican convention, some considered removing his committee chairmanship which may have led him to switch to the Republican Party. All that is fine except this: "As Ezra Klein of The Washington Post noted recently, this turned out to be one of the most consequential decisions Obama and Reid made. If Lieberman had not been welcomed back by the Democrats, there might not have been a 60th vote for health care reform, and it would have failed. There certainly would have been no victory for “don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal without Lieberman’s tireless work and hawkish credentials. The Kerry-Lieberman climate bill came closer to passage than any other energy bill. Lieberman also provided crucial support or a swing vote for the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the stimulus bill, the banking bill, the unemployment extension and several other measures." Isn't that just what's wrong with politics that the letter next to someone's name would determine their vote? If Joe Lieberman was a truly good representative, his actions would've been the same even if he had switched parties, but of course they probably wouldn't be because they all think it's a game.
