I am watching Laffey's concession speech on C-SPAN.org and it is pretty sad. He starts off by thanking his mom and saying that he didn't know how he'd tell his dad about the loss in the morning (his dad suffers from Alzheimer's). That was depressing. Anyway, the main point of this is how Laffey came right out and said that he'd be backing Chafee. How many here think Chafee would have done the same thing if the situation was flipped? I honestly don't think he would. Stephen Laffey is a good man. I don't think I can say the same for Linc and that's after putting my ideological differences aside.
So, party loyalty makes you a good man? I'm not so sure.

Being respectful of his opponent makes him a good man. Chafee would have probably whined, bashed Laffey, complained about the GOP and said that he's not voting for Laffey.

So I take it you dislike the actions taken by Joseph Lieberman in the aftermath of his Aug. 8 primary loss?

I can see why people would be angry but it is a bit different. Lieberman at least made it known to Dems that he'd run as an Independent whereas Chafee would have never stated those intentions before his party's vote.
