POLITICS: TNR and Lieberman

I meant to link to this last week, but was busy: Dr. Manhattan breaks down The New Republic's endorsement of Joe Lieberman and how the TNR staff's reaction mirrors the fissure within the Democratic party -- and the nation -- over national security. (The Mad Hibernian noted the TNR endorsement here). The Democrats seem certain to head in the opposite direction from Lieberman; they will almost be compelled to do so to avoid a debilitating third-party candidacy. As I pointed out to Tom Maguire, this leaves TNR as a partisan magazine in search of a party.
