Glenn Greenwald joins Rachel Maddow to explain who will be responsible if health care reform fails (and why): Sen. Joe Lieberman. Oh, and he's afraid to come on the show and debate her, which should surprise no one. Holy Joe will only go on FOX and on Morning Joe. He hasn't got the balls to go on anywhere else, especially where he'd be proven a liar.

Oct. 28: Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-CT, is threatening to filibuster a health reform bill that includes that public option, even though he’s been against this tactic in the past. Could this be because of his ties to the big insurance companies? Rachel Maddow is joined by Salon.com’s Glenn Greenwald.
For the past couple of nights on her MSNBC show, Rachel Maddow has skewered Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) for his stated willingness to filibuster health reform. Decrying his “demonstrably and obviously untrue arguments” about the public option, Maddow told her audience last night that Lieberman could end up being “the reason we won’t get health reform if we don’t get health reform.” For his part, Lieberman appears afraid of defending his views to Maddow’s face.
