Political Take: The Transition Edition!

The election may be over but the Political Take continues!

In today's edition, The Fix and Newsweek managing editor Dan Klaidman discuss the hiring of two longtime Clinton Administration operatives -- Rahm Emanuel and Ron Klain -- to senior positions in the still-forming White House of President-elect Barack Obama and what it means for the transition process.

And, while many people have moved on from election 2008, there remain three Senate contests -- Alaska, Minnesota and Georgia -- still without a winner. We examine the state of play in each of the races and what it all means for Democrats' continued quest for a 60-seat, filibuster-proof majority.

All that plus the fate of Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Ct.) in this week's Political Take!

Lieberman is like a person without a country. I don't think he's warmly embraced by either party because his loyalty cannot be trusted. His only interest is in Israel. He would be better off relocating to Israel and running for office there.

Never mind his ungentlemanly behavior, Liberman is a fear-monger, jumping at shadows and still on board the neocon view of the world. He should be off any committee having to do with national security, those posts need a clear head.

I disagree with Seemstone. JL has no place to go as an I who usually votes D except on Middle East policy. He would be the very most liberal R. The Ds can use his vote and will try to keep him. The Rs have little to offer him.

Joe "the snake" Lieberman will not let others decide his fate. If he senses that he will be of no use to the democrats he will cross parties on his own.
