It's just more good poker playing. Lieberman is of course a nauseatingly despicable person, the sort one would only shake hands with whilst wearing rubber gloves. But he can be useful. If publicly humiliated, he could do a lot of damage. So Obama was right to intervene early and set the tone for a reconciliation. I'm sure he had to hold his nose while doing it, though.
