In fact, he's hinted at an independent run should he lose the Democratic Primary to his challenger, Ned Lamont.
So I find it interesting that, when asked about Ned Lamont, Harry Reid answered some bloggers in Vegas this past weekend:
He said he'd met with Ned twice and liked him a lot. And as to the opposition we've been mounting against Joe? Reid said it to me twice, and he chose his words very carefully:

It pains me to have these feelings about Joe Lieberman. He's a fellow tribesman, I thought he spoke powerfully at the 2000 Convention in his VP candidate acceptance speech. I know he's been on the right side of a woman's control over her uterus and civil rights.
It's just that the enablers have to go, particularly within the opposition party. This is no time for those who's bad judgment in any way helped launch the Bush Iraq War to be taken seriously as a national leader. Not unless they've in some way renounced their choice.
And Lieberman is still towing the insanity line.
Maybe something on the state level. Slower. Less "international".
Less likely to set something on fire.
