ABSTRACT
This article looks at why liberal political groups are encouraging former Senator Lowell Weicker to run against Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman. Groups such as MoveOn and Daily Kos say Lieberman is not a liberal due to his steadfast support of the Iraq war, even though Americans for Democratic Action (ADA) judge Lieberman to be more liberal than Weicker.
