Still to come: making sure that Lamon'ts statements don't go to far  
to the left. I haven't followed it that closely so he may already  
have pulled a Barack Obama on the issue. At the end he has to get  
cozy with the Clintons and others--one big happy family.

I tried so hard to rearrange your mind.
But after while I realized you were disarranging mine.
You better stop, look around
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes

NEW YORK - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton hosted Connecticut Senate  
candidate Ned Lamont at her Westchester County home Friday morning,  
discussing campaign strategy and fundraising in an hourlong meeting  
over coffee, Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson said.

"It was a great meeting. Senator Clinton thinks Ned Lamont did a  
fabulous job in Connecticut," Wolfson said, referring to Lamont's  
stunning upset victory over Sen. Joe Lieberman in the state's  
Democratic primary."She'll do whatever works for the campaign," he  

Clinton, who has borne considerable criticism from anti-war activists  
and bloggers for her refusal to recant her 2002 vote authorizing the  
Iraq conflict, moved quickly to endorse Lamont after his primary  
victory. Before the primary she offered tepid support to Lieberman, a  
friend since their days at Yale Law School, but never campaigned for  

Lieberman spokesman Dan Gerstein said he wasn't surprised Clinton was  
offering further support to Lamont, but suggested it probably  
wouldn't help much.

"If endorsements meant anything, Joe Lieberman would have won the  
primary running away," Gerstein said, adding, "Senator Clinton's  
position on Iraq is far closer to Joe Lieberman's than it is to Ned  

As if to illustrate the new Clinton-Lamont partnership, Wolfson, who  
is one of Clinton's senior political strategists, said Friday he  
would join the Lamont campaign as an adviser.

"She wanted me to do it, and I wanted to do it," Wolfson said. "It's  
vitally important that we elect a Democrat to that seat."
