Well, not the wolves exactly, but the Senate Democratic Caucus, which could be worse:
The full Democratic caucus will vote on whether Joe Lieberman is allowed to keep his chairmanship of the Homeland Security committee at its caucus meeting next week, a leadership aide confirms to us.
Previously, Reid’s office had held this possibility out but hadn’t made a final decision on whether to throw Lieberman’s fate to the full Dem caucus for a vote
President-Elect Obama has weighed in with the opinion that he would like to see Lieberman stay in the Democratic Caucus, but Lieberman’s online enemies seem to think they have the votes to kick him out.
Personally, I don’t think this will mean much of anything in the long run. If the Democrats kick Lieberman out of the caucus, he may well end up with the Republicans (although I don’t see what value there is in that move for him since the GOP can’t offer him anything) but he’s still going to vote the same way he always has, and that’s usually going to be of benefit to the Democratic leadership and the White House.
