"In this conversation, Kristol and Lieberman discuss key moments of Lieberman’s career in public service from his ascent in Connecticut politics to Gore-Lieberman in 2000, as well as his successful Senate campaign as an independent in 2006. Lieberman also reflects on colleagues and contemporaries such as Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Bob Dole, John McCain, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush," writes the Foundation for Constitutional Government, the sponsor of the series.
The former Democratic vice presidential nominee in the 2000 election has not decided who he'll be voting for this time around. Lieberman made the admission in a C-Span appearance that broadcast earlier today:
Retiring Connecticut senator Joseph Lieberman, an independent Democrat, did not rule out supporting his friend from across the aisle, former Republican congressman Chris Shays, in the Senate race to replace himself.
Last night, the tail end of Thanksgiving weekend, Republican presidential candidate Buddy Roemer made a major announcement. “Senator Joe Lieberman’s reputation as a reformer and a man of integrity is unrivaled in American politics,” Roemer said in a press release sent out by his campaign. “He is unequivocally my first choice for a Vice Presidential running mate.”
Independent Democrat Joe Lieberman blasted President Obama and Nicolas Sarkozy for a "totally unacceptable, totally offensive" conversation about Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. On Sean Hannity's radio show this afternoon, Lieberman said "it was very troubling."
"At this point, it's safe to say many in the Democratic caucus see Sen. Lieberman as a mosquito," said Jimmy Williams, a former aide to Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.). "The bad news is he has sucked enough blood from both sides of the aisle. The good news is winter is coming, meaning his time in the Senate will thankfully come to an end."
