Joe Lieberman to endorse Scott Brown?

The rumor mill is churning (like Martha Coakley's stomach):

Joe Lieberman may be close to announcing his suppport for Massachusetts Senate Candidate Scott Brown. Citing the historical Healthcare Reform Bill as the main issue attracting Lieberman to endorse Brown's Campaign. Scott Brown is vehemently opposed to the proposed Healthcare Legislation.

Joe Lieberman has run against many of his Democratic Counterparts in the Senate over the so called Obamacare Health Care Reform Bill. Back in December, with the public option dead, Democrats revived an old proposal to expand Medicare, but Lieberman voted no. That plan was considered by a small percentage of liberals as a decent alternative to the public option leaving Lieberman at odds with Democratic Senate Leader Harry Reid.

Speculation is such that if Lieberman were to endorse Scott Brown over the coming weekend that would most likely seal the defeat of Martha Coakley for Senate...Latest polling has Brown leading Coakley by a margin of 1 to 4 points...

A Lieberman endorsement would be the death knell for the Democrats in Massachusetts. It could also cost Joe his chairmanship of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. Might be worth if for the senator just to keep his tongue and let events play out as they appear they might, with no risk to his position. On the other hand, he may not need to worry about appeasing the Democratic party much past November anyway...

C'mon, Joe. The Left hates your guts regardless...just for laughs, why don't you send them right off the cliff with an announcement made right around the time when President Obama (
