Here’s some news that’s bound to spark outrage from within the Democratic ranks: None other than Sen. Joe Lieberman, “Independent Democrat” and vice presidential candidate on the 2000 Democratic ticket, is slated to speak at the upcoming Republican National Convention in Minnesota.
AP via Yahoo News:
Lieberman will deliver a speech when Republicans gather in St. Paul, Minn., to nominate McCain for president, a party official told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The official requested anonymity because a formal announcement had yet to be made.
Asked during a visit to Georgia whether he would be speaking at the convention, Lieberman smiled and said: “It’s quite possible, but I’ll let them announce it.”
Lieberman, 66, caucuses with Senate Democrats, though [he] has been a strong supporter of the Iraq war and is a staunch backer of McCain’s presidential bid, traveling often with the Arizona senator and campaigning on his behalf during the GOP primary in states like Florida that have large numbers of Jewish voters.
