Why you can't dump a successful incumbent.

The Anti-war Left are doing bitter pre-mortems on the Ned Lamont campaign. By inciting anti-war activists to vote against Lieberman in their own primary, they miscalculated badly. What did they think would happen? They were attacking Lieberman on the single issue which the Republicans support him on. There aren't a whole lot of conservatives in Connecticut, but a lot of moderates. So, if you want to wash someone out of your party, maybe you ought to vote for his opponent in another party, and be prepared to live with the outcome of the election.
