Lieberman: The Zell Miller Of 2008 Republican Convention?
Listen, I’ll respect his decision if he does, but does he really think McCain will fight for the values he believes in beyond the neo-con war agenda? Because that seems to be one of the few things they have in common.
Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), the Democratic Partyâ€™s 2000 vice presidential nominee, is leaving open the possibility of giving a keynote address on behalf of Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) at the Republican National Convention in September.
Republicans close to the McCain campaign say Liebermanâ€™s appearance at the convention, possibly before a national primetime audience, could help make the case that the presumptive GOP nominee has a record of crossing the aisle. That could appeal to much-needed independent voters.
McCain has yet to ask Lieberman to speak, either in primetime or elsewhere, at the convention. But if McCain thinks it will help make his case for the White House, as some of his allies suspect, Lieberman would be willing to speak on his behalf.
â€œIf Sen. McCain, who I support so strongly, asked me to do it, if he thinks it will help him, I will,â€ Lieberman said in a brief interview.
And if he does, and I’ll bet anybody $100 right now that he will, let’s hope he doesn’t embarrass himself like Zell did.
In other worlds, stay away from the spitballs Joe.
