Senator Dodd refuses to answer the question

Well, I guess I know what category to place Senator Dodd's name.
Want to see a Democratic senator squirm? Don't ask about Iraq or gasoline prices. Ask about Joe Lieberman.

They edge toward the door, duck into the elevator, scoot down the hall to avoid the question: Will you support Joe Lieberman if he loses the Aug. 8 Senate primary to Ned Lamont and runs as an independent?

Sen. Christopher J. Dodd, D-Conn., laughs heartily and says, "My boy Joe's going to win the primary." Pressed on what would happen if he does not, Dodd gets more serious.

"I'll cross that bridge when I come to it," he said. "I learned not to answer questions like that until I have to."
On the fence he goes.

Keep the pressure on and ask those Democratic lawmakers to answer the simple question.

"Will you support the Democratic nominee for Senate"

Don't we have a right to know?
