BREAKING: Senate Democrats Vote To Keep Lieberman (UPDATE)

Majority Leader Harry Reid is holding a press conference to announce that the Senate Democratic caucus has voted to allow Joe Lieberman to keep the Chairmanship of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee.

President-Elect Barack Obama is getting credit for intervening on behalf of Lieberman; hopefully Lieberman will keep that fact in mind as he wields oversight authority over the White House for the next four years.

UPDATE: CNN reports that the final vote total was 42-13.
