"I have no desire to change parties," Lieberman said in a telephone interview. "If that ever happens, it is because I feel the majority of Democrats have gone in a direction that I don't feel comfortable with."Asked whether that hasn't already happened with Iraq, Lieberman said: "We will see how that plays out in the coming months," specifically how the party approaches the issue of continued funding for the war."
Hmmm. I wonder what extra goodies, e.g., committee assignments, Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is offering Lieberman for the jump?
