Take that, netroots!

For those bloggers who thought they had some influence over Harry Reid and the rest of the Democrats in the Senate, guess again.

Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) easily won a vote to remain chairman of a key committee today and will stay in the Democratic caucus despite his high-profile criticism of President-elect Barack Obama and his support of Sen. John McCain during the presidential campaign.

The vote was 42-13 (remember this was a Democrats-only vote).

I imagine this is only the first of what will be many disappointments to come from the US Senate, Democratically-controlled or not. There will be no Profiles in Courage from most of that bunch.
