All the Lamont News You Could Wish For

Howie was up early this morning and has gathered together a bunch of great articles on the impact of the likely Lamont win on Tuesday in the Connecticut Democratic Senate primary, starting with a great long piece from Dan Balz in the WAPO.  Short version: this will change the Democratic Party.  As I skimmed over the other articles that Howie has linked to, it is clear that the Hartford Courant is having fun being the center of the domestic political universe for a few weeks.  Among other things, they say that 11,493 people have rushed to register to vote in the Democratic primary this week.  I suppose this could be Republicans transferring to vote for Lieberman.  But I expect it is more likely a new group of voters wanting to get involved to vote for a really good person to represent them in the Senate.  Gee, maybe the trick to getting more people to vote is getting really good candidates who will be accountable to their electorate and not to big donors.  Go Lamont.

Lynn - I read that those new Democratic registrants were previously "unaffiliated". Not good news for Leiberman. But very good news for democracy.
