Ned Lamont, scion of the Eastern Establishment, rolled up staggering margins in those places most likely to include his fellow anti-war WASPs. Joe Lieberman, son of a Stamford liquor store owner, won the workaday towns most likely to include other ethnic voters less motivated by opposition to Iraq....

... it was, as Mike Barnicle put it on Hardball, a battle between Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks....


Understand this: despite his pose as a working-class hero from Fitchburg, Barnicle and his wife, a top Fleet bank executive, live among the rich in the super-exclusive suburb of Lincoln, summer with the Hyannis Port social set, and hobnob with the political and business elite of Boston and Cambridge.
