Sen. Joe Lieberman believes that there are some things more important than political parties; Senator Chris Dodd believes there are things more important than friendship. And then, of course, there was the Englishman who said that if he had been given the choice to betray his friend or his country, he hoped to God he would have the good sense to betray his country. There is an ongoing vigorous debate within the Democrat party on all these points.

The most humorous moment in the campaign so far occurred when Attorney General Richard Blumenthal lost his place in his script. As reported by Gregory B. Hladky in the Bristol Press:

State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal momentarily slipped into old habits before swiftly correcting himself. "I am supporting Joe Lieberman," Blumenthal began and then stopped in embarrassment. "I am supporting Ned Lamont as ardently as I supported Joe Lieberman," he added.
