I know, very unlikely on both accounts, but what if?  I think Lieberman could have beaten Bush in 2004.  And McCain seems to be liked by the media.

Close my eyes, take a big gulp out of my budweiser, and then pull the lever for Lieberman.

Lieberman.  He was my pick for the 2004 primaries until Clark and Gephardt took shifted my allegiance.  I supported all of the major candidates except for Kerry and Dean during the Primaries.

Unless McCain starts kissing up to the religious right, I think I'd vote for him. And then work to rebuild the Dem Party.

I'd vote for Lieberman because I like him more than McCain. Heck, I supported Joe over President Bush, that is until New Hampshire when he dropped out. Sad

I'd have to vote for Lieberman, though his whiny speaking style would be annoying as hell for four years.

Exact same damn thing I was thinking.

For every election since 1960 (not that I've been alive that long), I would have voted for the Democrat each time.

That said: McCain.

Even Carter in 1980?  What are you, some kind of radical?

I would probably vote for Lieberman, but McCain could persuade me to change my mind.  (Explaining why he endorsed Bush in 2004 would go a long way.)

McCain would win with at least 500 electoral votes, as his insurgent image would fire up moderates, Perot voters, and people who don't normally vote.  He'd get the votes of some liberals from the Democratic coalition. 

I just don't understand the appeal of Lieberman.  He kisses up to Bush too much, which confounds me considering that he represents Connecticut, not Kentucky or Idaho.  Also, I can't see how Lieberman fires up anyone of any ideology.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but I highly doubt that moderates, independents, and other swing voter groups vote have a 50-point checklist on where the candidate stands compared to their views.  Even if they do, these voters would have to choose between one set of issues and another, so the hot-button issues would be a wash for them.  Can someone enlighten me on why people would be fired up about Lieberman?  I can tell you that at dailykos.com and mydd.com, Zell Miller is the only less popular Democrat.

I think that's an underestimation of Lieberman. He would actually do pretty well.
