WILD SPECULATION ... LIEBERMAN AS DEFENSE SECRETARY?
Here's a nightmare scenario for various people who think they're probably going to take the Senate:
* Bush appoints Joe Lieberman as Defense Secretary.
* Connecticut's Republican governor, M. Jodi Rell, then appoints a replacement in the Senate.
* The replacement is Ned Lamont. Kidding! The replacement is GOP loser Alan Schlesinger.
You're welcome, paranoid freaks.
UPDATE, NEVER MIND: Bob Gates from the Baker-Hamilton Cut 'n Run Group becomes Defense Secretary. So, hello Syria and Iran!
