To help Lieberman? Nope. The DCCC has targeted all three Connecticut Republican Congressmen for defeat in November. I'm working on what will be a fairly lengthy piece (MEGO material) concerning the Democrat '08 strategy as it appears from the application of available DCCC funds controlled by Clinton associate Rahm Emmanuel to various congressional races where the Democratic candidate actually has little chance of prevailing. The money is being spent to develop closer Clinton ties with campaign advisors who would be helpful to Miz Clinton in '08. A puzzle within that puzzle is the focus by Emmanuel on Connecticut. It really isn't a factor for '08 (maybe a tiny one if Rudy's the candidate) so my best bet is that Connecticut is where Emmanuel is looking for his excuse for having spent '06 money on Miz Clinton's '08 campaign (other ideas concerning the CT focus will be gratefully accepted). Emmanuel is dumping about $4M into ad buys in CT, which is quite a bit considering that Simmons seat in CT-02 is the only one in significant danger.
A significant presence by Giuliani at fund raisers and other events involving the Connecticut candidates would help them, help Giuliani in Connecticut (and New Hampshire and Vermont) and, as a sideline, help Lieberman. I'd rate his presence there to be as necessary for his aspirations in '08 as appearances in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.
Make some time, Rudy - it will pay off very well.
