You read it here first!

Well, maybe it was second. I don't know. But, I had posted on 11/08, that Joe Lieberman was a gentleman (in my opinion) and wouldn't it serve those Democrats right, who had treated Lieberman so poorly, if Joe switched parties. I know that it would piss these guys off. Switching parties would make the Senate 50/50 and throw the deciding vote to Vice-President Cheney.
Today, I read this:

Lieberman refuses to close door on switching parties
November 12, 2006
HARTFORD, Conn. --Sen. Joe Lieberman on Sunday repeated his pledge to caucus with Senate Democrats when the 110th Congress convenes in January, but refused to slam the door on possibly moving to the Republican side of the aisle.

Asked on NBC's "Meet the Press" if he might follow the example of Sen. Jim Jeffords of Vermont, who left the Republicans in 2001 and became an independent, ending Republican control of the U.S. Senate, Lieberman refused to discount the possibility.
"I'm not ruling it out but I hope I don't get to that point," he said. "And I must say -- and with all respect to the Republicans who supported me in Connecticut -- nobody ever said, 'We're doing this because we want you to switch over. We want you to do what you think is right and good for our state and country,' and I appreciate that."
