Speculation about Joe Lieberman replacing Sec. Rumsfeld is building after Lieberman was dropped by the Democrat party for the upcoming senate elections in November. Lieberman already turned down president Bush's invitation earlier this year in order to fight for a place in the senate. After the Democrat party snubbing him for holding strong to his views (as opposed to bending his views in order to get elected), he may wish to snub them by taking the over from the questionable current sec. for defence.
