Senator Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut is an independent who caucuses with the Democrats. From time to time he drives them crazy, and from time to time provides them with a crucial vote.
Mr. Lieberman, up for reelection in 2012, will not seek a fifth term, according to sources close to the Senator.
The New York Times's David Brooks calls Senator Lieberman A Most Valuable Democrat, while the Times's Gail Collins wishes a non-nostalgic Goodbye to a Guy Named Joe.
How does Abq Jew react to this news? Is Senator Lieberman one of the Jewish All-Stars (who can forget his Amazing Adventure in 2000?), or is he an annoying pain in the tuchus? Senator Lieberman is a complicated man, and Abq Jew feels very strongly both ways.
