Lieberman for Secretary of Defense?!?

I've now read this theory at Southern Appeal and in the Weekly Standard. Have any of you heard about it before?Goes like this: Democrats win the Senate and the House and have the muscle to get Rumsfeld to resign. Bush appoints Lieberman Secretary of Defense and then Republican Connecticut Governor M. Jodi Rell appoints a Republican to Lieberman's vacated Senate seat. Bonus: If it's a 51-49 Democratic Senate with Lieberman, a Republican replacement appointment makes it 50-50 in the Senate and Republican after Cheney breaks the tie.Not sure if I buy it. Does Lieberman have the experience?
