Senator Joe

Anyone following the Lamont-Lieberman senatorial primary in Connecticut will probably find this article in The Nation a pretty good assessment of the race’s importance. Anyone not following it might find it a handy intro.

For anyone outside the US, the significance of the race is that a sitting senator and one-time vice presidential candidate looks set to not even get nominated for his senate seat.

So it’s worth watching, eh?
