He's like a Swiss clock.

Although Lieberman strongly denounced Foley's behavior - the former congressman sent overtly sexual messages to a teenage boy who worked as a page for the House of Representatives - Lieberman stopped short of calling for the resignation of Republican leaders who failed to investigate Foley after learning of a different set of e-mails to another page.

Instead, Lieberman again reverted to his partisanship theme.

"I know some people are calling for [House Speaker Dennis] Hastert to resign, but the truth is that unless he knows what he saw and he saw something he should have acted on, he deserves to have essentially a fact-finder to come in," Lieberman said.

"The Foley case bothers people," he added. "If anyone thinks they can make this into another partisan flap, it's not. It's very real and human. The House Republican leaders and, frankly, the Democratic leadership, should not make it partisan."

"Is it hot in here or is it me?"
