Lieberman concedes

Live on C-SPAN as I blog this.

— Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL), quoted by the Washington Post, on the Lieberman-Lamont primary race and the threats posed to candidates backing the Iraq war.

One comment

  1. Yes, it’s great; but to get a quasi-populist elected in a primary, you still have to be a multimillionaire in this country. ugh…
