Lieberman Keeps Chairmanship

The Democratic Caucus voted 42 to 13 to allow Independent Joe Lieberman to keep his Chairmanship on the Senate Homeland Security Committee. The vote included six newly elected Democrats and excluded Barack Obama, who resigned his Senate and Joe Biden.

Part of the deal also strips Lieberman of his seat on the Environment and Public Works Committee, but allows him to retain his Chairmanship on the Armed Services Subcommittee on Airland.

Lieberman received criticism from Democrats after he endorsed John McCain for President and criticized Obama on the campaign trail for being unprepared to protect America.

“There are some that I made that I wish I had never made at all,” Lieberman said later.

Obama had supported a compromise to keep Lieberman in the Caucus.
