    Wouldn't Harry Reid be a better person to ask?

    Sorry, but this can't happen. The committee appointments are controlled by a Senate Organizing Resolution passed at the beginning of the Congress. Trying to strip Senator Lieberman of his appointments would require a new organizing resolution which could be filibustered easily, AND which Lieberman and the Republicans would all likely vote against, leaving a 50-50 split.

    Lieberman won't lose his Committee appointments until next congress.
