Actually, it’s not clear that a Lieberman defection would flip the Senate. The Jeffords defection only caused a switch because of a deal that Trent Lott and Tom Daschle had made in advance; no such deal is in place now.

That might go a long way toward explaining why Lieberman hasn’t jumped ship yet.
