Party stalwarts line up behind Sen. Lieberman

By Mark PazniokasThe Hartford CourantFebruary 25, 2006By lining up early endorsements from Democratic leaders and organized labor, U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn., signaled Thursday he is taking seriously the anti-war candidacy of Ned Lamont of Greenwich.Lieberman, who turned 64 yesterday, accepted birthday wishes and endorsements from an extraordinary assemblage of political figures, many of whom disagree with his support of the war in Iraq."I think my fellow Democrats, my friends in the labor movement are saying, 'That's one part of a long record of service in the United States Senate. Even if we disagree with him on the Iraq war, we agree with him on everything else,' " Lieberman said.Every statewide Democratic officeholder except Treasurer Denise Nappier, who campaigned with Lieberman the previous day, joined the senator in a union hall in Hartford. Nine politicians and a dozen union leaders took turns singing the praises of Connecticut's junior senator.Rocco Calo, who leads the Teamsters local on strike at Sikorsky, told the crowd that the house of labor does not forget old friends. Lieberman already has walked the picket line with his members and tried to restart contract talks, he said.In an odd way, the endorsement bash was a milestone for Lamont, a Greenwich businessman who is not scheduled to formally announce his candidacy until next month and is unknown to 93 percent of voters."What I took out of it is the fact they are taking us seriously," said Tom Swan, who is managing Lamont's campaign. "They know we will be building a serious campaign."Lamont is offering himself as a catalyst for liberals dissatisfied with Lieberman's support of the war and his cordial relationship with President Bush. No one knows precisely how deep or wide runs that vein of dissatisfaction.

my vote however, is going to ned lamont if at all possible
