What I Want

2 comments February 12th, 2007at 06:42pm Posted by Eli

Since the comments on my Look On The Bright Side post have turned to what we want to see in 2008, and don suggested that Joe Lieberman should have a role in the new administration, I thought I would offer up my dream scenario of how I would like to see things play out.

1) Gore runs for president and wins. This is paramount.

2) Gore’s veep is either Edwards, Clark, or Feingold if he’s willing. I might have considered Boxer, but not after she backed Lieberman.

3) Clark is SecDef if he’s not veep; otherwise either don’s suggestion of Murtha, or one of the retired generals who spoke out against the war in Iraq (Zinni, maybe?).

4) This is the beauty part, but it may require a little finesse and a lot of flattery: President Gore entices Lieberman into a cabinet position (head of DHS, maybe?), treats him like Dubya treated Christie Whitman, then fires him the day after the deadline passes to declare for the CT-SEN election for Joe’s seat (appointed replacements only serve until the next election cycle), leaving the field clear for Lamont. Also, someone takes a picture of Joe’s face at the exact moment when he realizes he’s screwed, and e-mails me a very high-resolution copy so I can make it the new Multi Medium banner.

    Does it make me a bad person that I want to see Joementum on the receiving end of The Mother Of All Ratfucks?

    Plus I desperately want him out of the Senate, even if the Dems do well enough next year that he has no power at all.
