Time to go, Joe.
Joe Lieberman, who campaign is getting no traction anywhere, is now comparing Wes Clark to Dick Cheney over lobbying that Clark did (and appears to have previously fully disclosed) seems really overblown and more than a little desperate. It's also (IMO) over the line for one Democratic candidate to be making that kind of statement about another. It's fine to criticize him if you have substantive grounds based on the lobbying activity, but the Cheney comparison (like the ad criticizing Dean with Osama bin Laden) is damaging to the party. If that's the best you can come up with, it's a sign that you're past the point of having anything useful to add to the debate.

Time to drop out, Joe. For the good of the party.
