Democrats prefer socialist over their own party

Hillary Clinton will not back CT Senator Joe Lieberman in the general election as an independent if he loses the Democratic primary to challenger Ned Lamont. Why? Party loyalty:

"I've known Joe Lieberman for more than thirty years. I have been pleased to support him in his campaign for re-election, and hope that he is our party's nominee," the former first lady said in a statement issued by aides.

"But I want to be clear that I will support the nominee chosen by Connecticut Democrats in their primary," the New York Democrat added. "I believe in the Democratic Party, and I believe we must honor the decisions made by Democratic primary voters."

But such loyalty has its limits elsewhere. In Vermont, the very same Democrat Party is attempting to not even allow one of its own get on the ballot for US Senate so as to clear the way for socialist Bernie Sanders:

Ian Carleton, the chairman of the Vermont Democratic Party, said the party's efforts to secure the nomination for Sanders is a concession to political reality: Polls indicate that Sanders is so popular in Vermont that no Democrat has a real chance of beating him.

Even though three Democrats have announced their intention to run! Democrat Party leaders say they prefer Saunders to any of the three.

That's loyalty for 'ya!
