Obama still making nice to Lieberman

It’ s still not clear where this is headed. But what’s sad is the degree to which Democrats let people step all over them. It’s the root of the Republican argument that Democrats don’t care about national security – the notion, the very true notion, that Democrats don’t like to fight. The argument goes: If Democrats aren’t willing to defend themselves, aren’t willing to prove that they have even the teeniest bit of backbone and bite, then how will they defend the nation? Even if we get a 60-Senator majority, we won’t break filibusters with a caucus that sees no price in straying. No discipline, no unity.
