A question of motives
Whether Joe Lieberman should be criticized or praised depends upon your analysis of his motives.
If you believe, as most of his critics do, that his actions were largely motivated by his personal need for attention or his desire to gain favor with the insurance industry (which is heavily represented in his state) - then he should be criticized for being self-serving.
If you believe, as he claims, that his actions were largely motivated by his desire to do what is right (in the long-term) for our country - then he should be praised for being courageous and patriotic.
