WASHINGTON - The Democratic Party's boss says it's time for Joe to go.
Adding his voice to a chorus of other leaders, Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said Sunday that Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman should drop his independent bid against Ned Lamont, the anti-war candidate who knocked him off in last week's primary.
"I know how hard this is for Joe, and he is a good person, but the truth is, I lost one of these races, and I got behind my party's nominee, and I think that is what you have to do if you want to help this country," Dean said on NBC's "Meet the Press."
"The way to help this country is to limit Republican power," he said.
Let's face it, if this doesn't motivate the Lieberman campaign, nothing will. After all, listening to Howard Dean talk politics is getting to be almost as silly as listening to Al Gore discuss global warming.
