Enjoy the moment, but then there's the Middle East

Yes, enjoy this moment. And I'll predict that Lieberman's independent campaign will fizzle in the next two weeks.

As for the Middle East, here is Yossi Beilin's article in Ha'aretz. As always, worth the read.

ADDENDUM: The Head Heeb has a thoughtful and even hopeful analysis of the latest developments in the Israel-Hezbollah war.

And Democrats seem to be lining up to tell Lieberman it's over per this nice round up from the Daily Kos. And who gave Rahm Emmanuel, the Democrat in charge of overseeing House races this fall, a big bag of Wheaties? This quote was delicious:

“This shows what blind loyalty to George Bush and being his love child means,” said Representative Rahm Emanuel of Illinois, the leader of the Democratic House Congressional campaign. “This is not about the war. It’s blind loyalty to Bush.”

Has Rahm finally realized that bloggers could have supported primaries against the likes of HR Clinton, Feinstein, Cantwell, and the Nelson twins of Nebraska and Florida--but didn't? Has Rahm finally realized bloggers backed ex-Reagan Navy Secretary Jim Webb in the Virginia primary (Webb won, too), who may have been more "moderate" than his primary opponent? Let's hope so.
