I always hated Lieberman, but I consider him even more of an asshole than I did before.

One of the few members of congress to stand up for what he believes in. FF may be going a bit too far, but certainly admirable.

the 33% of CT Democrats who voted for Lieberman in the general election should be sent to relocation camps.  but of course, it just strengthens my argument.  a member of the Democratic senate caucus from supposedly the 'bluest' region of the country openly support a candidate from the opposite party for president.  it redefines dark comedy.

McCain/Lieberman is perhaps the one GOP ticket I could see myself voting for.

I like that ticket. Only way it could happen (and I hope it does) is for the convention to be a deadlock between Romney, Giuliani and Huckabee and McCain comes out as the compromise candidate.

I hope the Republicans will see this as their best hope.

I supported Joe as an Indy in the Senate race, and I supported him for awhile. Sorry Joe, enough is enough. Wheres the party loyalty that nominated you for VP just 7 years ago?

I wonder if Lieberman hadn't lost the primary in 2006 whether he would've done this.

What are you talking about Duke?  Things are great so far.   I do have to cling to God no matter what.  I have nothing against this at all,  but in my class there are 9 blacks and 4 whites.  African Americans are quite prevalent in that part of Tulsa.  I don't mind it at all,  but it is an interesting fact in white Oklahoma.

Same here. On the bright side if the 2006 race was held today, Lieberman would lose to Ned Lamont.  The CT voters believed him when he said he wanted to end the war as quickly as possible. Now they know better.

Lieberman might have the biggest ego in Washington.

Joe Lieberman is a perfect argument in favor of the recall.

I'm not so sure.  Lieberman was a strong advocate for the surge, and now we're winning the war. 

We won the war more than two years ago when we overthrew Saddam Hussein. What we have now is an occupation.

Why exactly was this guy nominated for VP in 2000? I can only think of one good reason; to kick him out of the Senate.

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Is McCain/Lieberman the strongest "Republican" ticket?

i imagine after losing the dem primary that Joe isnt exactly feeling the love for his former party. I am curious...is he still a registered Democrat?

anyway he can endorse who he wants, but I do wonder if he will lose his next election after he has clearly moved away from the very blue CT voters.

also...I wonder what Reed would do. Doesnt Joe have a committee chair? I guess they need his one vote right now to maintain their majority, but if it werent for that I would think Reed would demote him

Of all the people in Washington, Lieberman sickens me the most. Well, I suppose not as much as Inhofe or Coburn. But he's pretty horrible nonetheless.

I see no problem here.  The man can endorse whoever he wants.

It's not just the endorsement itself, but the way in which he continues to maintain a pretense of still being a Democrat.  I hate the term "DINO" when it's misused, but in Lieberman's case, he certainly seems to be going down the route of Zell Miller.  I honestly would not be surprised to see Lieberman speaking at the 2008 Republican convention.

He pretty much attacks the Democratic party whenever he gets the chance. Say what you will about the Nelsons, Landrieu, etc: at least they don't go around talking about how radical and out-of-touch the Democratic party is.

I consider it ridiculous that people support those in the same party simply because they are in the same party.  Lieberman's endorsement is a bold move to say the least, but it's one I respect more than supporting a candidate simply because of party affiliation.
