Lieberman Plan Offered
He's calling for, basically, a truce between Democrats and the White House on Iraq, and for the two groups to work together. The Dem's he says have to realize Bush is Commander in Chief for 3 more years, the GOP has to realize that they need some cooperation from Democrats to make Iraq work.
This used to be what politicians called "the loyal opposition" where the out of power party came up with suggestions, and ideas, and tried to work with the party in power. The general idea was that cooperating on one or two causes made compromise on some by the party in power easier to stomach.
Since the mid-80's it's been kind of a foriegn concept in the US, and has become nearly absent since the GOP took the House in 1994.
I'm not sure if there are enough centrist Democrats who would be willing to work on such a panel, but the idea shouldn't be tossed out without consideration. Hell, it could be the starting point for a return to civil political discussions in the country.
By the way, if you are looking for coverage of Lieberman in the Post, they have two articles on Lowell Weicker wanting him challenged in the next election (here and here), and some more on that in their blog "The Fix".
Once again, the MSM blows it, and a second rate paper in a medium market covers the story.
