Consumer activist Ralph Nader, who has tangled publicly with both Chris Dodd and Joe Lieberman, is quite pleased that Lieberman will be leaving the U.S. Senate after 24 years.
Democrats praised Lieberman throughout the day on Wednesday, but Nader did not join in on the accolades.
“He couldn’t leave the Senate fast enough as far as I’m concerned,” Nader said in a telephone interview with Capitol Watch from his office in Washington, D.C. “He’s not only driving Democrats nuts down here, but he’s become a right-wing extremist on everything except the environment and gay rights.”
Despite Lieberman’s career as a national figure and a major player in Connecticut politics for three decades, Nader said that his decision to retire from the Senate is not the end of an era.
