Jonathan Chait: "Don't let the left defeat Lieberman"

From the LA Times:
WATCHING the left wing of the Democratic Party trying to take down Joe Lieberman has been a deeply confusing experience for me. The lefties say the Democratic senator from Connecticut is a self-righteous suck-up who lends President Bush undeserved credibility. Lieberman's allies say the lefties are a pack of crazed, ignorant ideological cannibals.

They're both basically right. So how am I supposed to deal with this?
Support Lieberman if you agree with his policies and oppose him if you don't? This is an interesting example of current Democratic thinking: all strategy and no political vision. The whole piece is interesting.
