If there were not an active Democratic primary with a candidate like Obama who is very attractive to Independents I think the Lieberman endorsement would be huge. As it is, it keeps McCain in the news and does give him a “rise above the fray” sense. He is not presently at the center of many of these day to day fights between candidates. While Romney and Huckabee are tied down in Iowa he can roam NH free from incoming fire.
Romney is not so lucky. The tax and fee issues may be one that follows him alfter today. From a rival camp that seems willing to make hay, at least for now: “Mitt Romney’s explanation on increasing fees by hundreds of millions of dollars was completely disingenuous. Not only did he raise fees more than any other state, but many were in fact broad-based and nothing more than a back door to increasing taxes. Who knows how many more flip-flops and contradictions we would have heard if Meet the Press had gone on another hour.”
