Obama Will Support Lamont

It says something about the state of politics in this country that this item is newsworthy: Sen. Barack Obama will support Connecticut's Democratic Senate nominee.

It seems that Democratic senators supporting the Democratic candidate nominated by Democratic voters in the Democratic primary should be a no-brainer.

But I'm sure I will be startled by the number of Democratic "leaders" who will back George Bush's favorite Democratic senator.

Update: One local outcome of this race will be the Democratic Whip — you know him as Illinois Sen. Richard Durbin — receiving demands that Lieberman be removed from his party committee assignments if continues his run as an independent.

And folks can contact Sen. Durbin’s office here:
