Lieberman Secretary of Defense

Here is a rumor my father told me that he read in the Pittsburgh Tribune.
Secretary of Defense nominee Gates will not get by the new Senate. President Bush nominates newly re-elected U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, that independent now scheduled to caucus with the Democrats in the 110th Congress, to succeed Donald Rumsfeld.
That allows Connecticut Gov. M. Jodi Rell, a Republican, to name a Republican senatorial successor. Which makes the upper chamber’s composition 50 Republicans, 49 Democrats and the Democrat-caucusing Socialist Bernie Sanders.
That would leave a tied Senate chamber, 50-50, with Vice President Dick Cheney as the Republican tie-breaker.
How likely is this to happen? I am not taking bets Wordbones. It is interesting speculation.
Read the entire column here. By the way the writer is the same guy that Theresa Heinz b slapped in 2004.
