Lieberman: No deal tonight

December 30, 2012

Asked as he left a meeting of the Senate Democratic caucus whether a deal would be struck today, Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) replied: "No, I'd be shocked. I think the parties are much farther apart than I hoped they'd be by now, and that the country thought they'd be when negotiations started on Friday."
