We've heard a lot about the kind of oversight priorities that committee Chairmen Henry Waxman (D-CA) and John Conyers (D-MI) will have on the House side. We've heard on the Senate side, for example, about the plans that Chairman Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) has for oversight from the Intelligence Committee.
But has anyone heard anything from Joe Lieberman ("ID"-CT) about his oversight plans as chair of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee?
With a huge portfolio, Lieberman's committee is positioned to investigate a vast swath of the federal government. But Lieberman's plans remain remarkably vague. For instance, a UPI story today describes at length the oversight plans being made by Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), who will become chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, but it devotes just one paragraph to Lieberman, confirming that he will serve as committee chairman.
So what does Joe have in store for the Bush Administration that so aggressively backed his re-election?
