You're watching multisource politics news analysis from Newsy
He’s one of the Senate’s most confounding members, whose support for both the Iraq War AND the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” -- gave new meaning to the political color purple. (Vide from: KNTV)
SEN. JOE LIEBERMAN (I-CT) (SEPTEMBER 2, 2008): “What, after all, is a Democrat like me doing at a Republican convention like this? Well, I'll tell you what. I'm here to support John McCain, because country matters more than party.” (VIDEO FROM CNN)
Independent Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman will not seek reelection to a fifth term in 2012. The news broke Tuesday, the same day Democratic Senator Kent Conrad of North Dakota announced he, too, wouldn’t be running for re-election. But it seems Lieberman’s news eclipsed that of Conrad. (VIDEO FROM ABC AND NY1)
The New York Times ran the story Tuesday night. But even before official confirmation from Lieberman’s office -- his aides were helping the Times write his political obit.
“...his aides said he had been particularly proud of his leadership in the Senate... [and] was best known for his centrist positions and outspokenness on issues of morality.”
Cue the 2012 “bigger picture” predictions. CNN’s John King muses -- President Obama is looking for a defense secretary. What are the odds for Lieberman -- who -- remember, endorsed McCain?
JOHN KING: “But he essentially said to Barack Obama, nice young man, not ready to be president of the united states. Is there any chance they will forgive and forget?”
ED HENRY: “Highly, highly unlikely. He has the credentials, you're absolutely right. But after giving that speech in Minneapolis/St. Paul and saying he's not ready to be president, he's not ready to be commander in chief, how do you make him defense secretary?”
Slate’s Emily Bazelon -- a Connecticut native -- calls the news of Leiberman’s retirement disappointing -- but not for the reasons you might think. She wanted to opportunity to vote him out -- not let him bow out.
“...there is the spectacle of it all: After each act of grand or petty betrayal ... the Democratic Party ... came back begging for more. … he never let anyone forget he was the 60th vote.”
So what are the Democrats to do without their not-so-reliable 60th vote? Fox News hosts turn their attention to the Republicans’ cause celebre -- repealing President Obama’s health care overhaul.
“I mean, let's say, you know, the Senate is not going to repeal health care right now and many believe today's actions are symbolic in nature. But then what happens the next time around if the Senate turns Republican and now you have a Republican House and a Republican Senate and a democrat president or maybe you have a Republican president...”
Finally -- a writer for Vanity Fair says while the media speculates the future of Lieberman and the Democratic party -- what’s surprising is no one seems to be looking at the Oval Office.
“Miraculously, most campaign-centric news organizations have—so far—refrained from interpreting this statement as a wink that Lieberman will run for president in 2012. After all, presidential hopes have been divined from thinner air.”
In his formal announcement Wednesday, Senator Lieberman said his decision stemmed from his belief his politics don’t fit into today’s political environment – that politics changed – but he didn’t.

The man some call the rock-star commander of his generation -- isn’t going anywhere.
That according to denials from the Pentagon -- after rumors swirl General David Petraeus was quitting his post as head of NATO and U.S. forces in Afghanistan. (Video: Al Jazeera)
“He's been leading U.S. Forces in Afghanistan for eight months. Tonight - reports that General David Petraeus is stepping down.” (WFXT)
It all started with a front page article in the Times of London -- who -- behind a pay wall reported -- the search was already “on” for the general’s successor.
That prompted the Pentagon to issue a firm denial.
“The Pentagon confirmed Petraeus will eventually leave his command, but said there are no firm plans.” (WEWS)
Did we say “firm” denial? According to The Atlantic Wire’s Ray Gustini -- it was anything but -- saying the Pentagon’s words...
“...leave room for interpretation. Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell tells Reuters that ‘General Petraeus is not quitting,’ before hastening to add ‘nor does he plan to stay in Afghanistan forever.’ In other words, stay tuned.”
And it ain’t over ‘till the headlines say it is, right? Despite the Pentagon’s rebuttal -- his career obit is still being written:
From Forbes: “Why History will Forget David Petraeus”
And The Australian writes: “The US Warrior Scholar will be a Hard Act to Follow”
The U.S. military’s independent news source -- The Stars and Stripes -- notes the rumors -- and denials -- all happened within the span of a few hours.
“...it highlights the speculation already gaming out behind the scenes about what Petraeus will do when his time is up in Afghanistan.”
Analysts have speculated Petraeus would make a run for the presidency - likely as a Republican candidate. Others point to his likelihood as the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staffs -- following Admiral Michael Mullen’s upcoming retirement.
But a guest tells FOX News’ Martha MacCallum -- all the speculation surrounding Petraeus’ departure could mean bad news for Afghanistan.
“If that's not where he's going, if he's either retiring, which means he's quitting, or being retired, which means he's being let go, I think that spells a lot of other problems, that means Afghanistan is not going well and it's not likely to get better.”
Finally - Wired’s Spencer Ackerman says - give it a rest already.
“[Petraeus’] letter to NATO troops last month sidestepped any talk of drawdowns in 2011, so it’s only fitting that the commander would want to see things through.”
General Petraeus formally took command in Afghanistan in July of 2010 -- when President Obama fired Stanley McChrystal after he made disparaging remarks about the administration in a Rolling Stone article.

You're watching multisource tech news analysis from Newsy.
It’s a crowded market that relies on one bit of consumer wisdom: everyone loves a good deal. Now - Facebook’s getting in on the action.
KCPQ: “The social networking site is adding a new feature that lets users share their shopping experiences with each other and save money. It's called 'Facebook Deals.' USA Today says the deals will appear on a users’ news feed through ads on a dashboard to the left. From there, you can buy the deal with a credit card, share it or 'like’ it.”
The service actually launched in Europe about three months ago. By most accounts - Facebook Deals is going after one rival in particular:
Groupon Commercial: “Save the money. Unlock great deals in your town. Groupon****.”
Groupon killer? That’s the word in the blogosphere. ReadWriteWeb’s Marshall Kirkpatrick is already writing the obit.
“At least in Europe, Facebook Deals offered deals for free. Free! The giant social network could scale like crazy doing that... It's a Walmart-style move, but Groupon isn't as lovable as the Mom 'n' Pop corner store.”
Groupon reaches deal-seekers through a daily email -- Facebook Deals will show up in a users’ newsfeed. KTVU’s Jade Hernandez explains Facebook’s leg up on the competition.
“Groupon counts on users to spread the word of a good deal through social media. But Facebook opens this up by using social networking platform. And by partnering with open table and gilt city, both of which specialize in different things, restaurant and high end deals with high end designers, the news is making some people excited about what a rivalry could mean for the consumer.”
What it means for the consumer -- suggests All Facebook’s Jackie Cohen -- is market saturation. She asks- how long can the business of daily deals hold up?
“So far, statistics have shown that businesses tend to do only one group buying offer to get customers and then never return to these services. That would suggest that this whole market has a very limited shelf life.”
But the real headliner -- according to Forbes -- is users can spend Facebook Credits on the deals. Can you say game changer?
“Until now people had only been able to use Credits to buy virtual goods for games, as well as for some digital products such as movies. Now people can purchase a voucher to buy a physical product for the first time ... which could move Facebook even further as an e-commerce platform.”
That’s all TECHNICALLY true -- though Facebook PR reps contacted ReadWriteWeb to clarify -- users can’t buy “physical goods” with credits -- but rather vouchers redeemable at events. In the end though -- for all the “Groupon killer” talk -- Business Insider’s Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry calls himself a “Groupon bull.”
“...actually, building a huge sales and service infrastructure is very hard ... similar to how anyone can start selling stuff online, but becoming Amazon is very hard. … [Facebook Deals’ key to success is] establishing that group buying is really a ‘feature’ that most media sites can replicate and not a ‘company.’”
Facebook Deals won’t be offered on mobile apps. It’s making its U.S. debut in only five cities: Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, San Diego and San Francisco.
