With ads that harken back to the political and social tumult of the late 1960s, former senatorial and gubernatorial hopeful Ned Lamont has embarked on a campaign to rally support for a nuclear non-proliferation agreement with Iran as the deal awaits congressional approval.

Former Gov. Lowell P. Weicker couldn’t do it, former Gov. John G. Rowland couldn’t do it and Gov. M. Jodi Rell couldn’t do it, so what makes Republican Tom Foley think he can solve a budget deficit by taking any and all tax increases off the table?

Kudos to Brian Lockhart of the Stamford Advocate for following through with his Freedom of Information request and getting the information on the alleged hacking of U.S. Senator Joseph Lieberman’s campaign web site the day of the 2006 Democratic Primary against challenger Ned Lamont.
Click here to continue reading about how the FBI determined that www.joe2006.com was never hacked as Lieberman and his campaign crew alleged.

A Research 2000 Daily Kos poll of 600 Connecticut voters found that if voters could vote again in the 2006 contest between U.S. Senator Joseph Lieberman and Ned Lamont, a large number of them would have changed their votes.
The percentage of Democrats and Independents who would vote for Lamont increased and the percentage of Republicans who would vote for Lieberman also increased.

One year ago today, all the world watched as the results of the Democratic primary between U.S. Senator Joseph Lieberman and Ned Lamont rolled in.
A palpable sense that change is possible in America rang out in a Meriden hotel ballroom as a confetti- draped Lamont proclaimed victory. At Lieberman headquarters in Hartford it seemed at times that the media outnumbered the campaign staff and supporters, who returned from the polls apprehensive about what would happen.
Today, Lamont re-launched his web site with great enthusiasm from local blogs. Bloggers waxed nostalgic about the primary victory and wondered if those who propelled Lieberman back into office in the general election regretted their votes.
Connecticut bloggers are unique in that they stayed involved in politics, even when there was no Congressional candidate, like Lamont, to rally behind. And they seem poised to relive the Lamont-Lieberman battle through their coverage of local mayoral races.

These men — a medical physicist and a poli sci prof — came head to head at a HoJo’s over the future of U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman’s phony political party. One left. The other recruited five more official “hijackers” to the anti-Joe cause.The occasion was the second organizational meeting of the Connecticut for Lieberman Party, the vehicle created to propel Connecticut’s junior senator to a general election win in 2006 after he lost the Democratic primary to anti-war challenger Ned Lamont. Lieberman created the “party” to have a line on the November ballot. Then he forgot about it.
