Lieberman Says Promised Seniority

The Hill reports that Lieberman said the Democratic Party’s leadership has assured him that he would keep his seniority even if he beats Lamont as an Independent. If this is true, it’s significant, because it reveals that Democrats have accepted the fact that Lieberman probably will win and that keeping Lieberman’s seat Democratic is more important that appeasing the Kos wing of the party. The further interesting wrinkle is that if Democrats win control of the Senate, Lieberman, the most pro-Bush Democrat, would become chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs panel, which is primarily responsible for investigating the executive branch.
