Lieberman Says He Won’t Run With McCain
Posted on Jan 29, 2008
Joe Lieberman, an “Independent Democrat,” staunchly supports the Iraq war, has voted to throw away billions on defense boondoggles, generally gravitates toward all things Republican and has endorsed GOP presidential candidate John McCain, but he draws the line at running alongside McCain as a vice president candidate. Lieberman says that if asked to join a ticket, he would tell McCain, “You can find much better.” For once, Joe, we agree with you.
AP via Breitbart:
“No, I’d tell him, ‘Thanks, John, I’ve been there, I’ve done that. You can find much better,’” Lieberman told The Associated Press during an interview Tuesday in his Senate office. “I’m not seeking anything else.”
The Connecticut senator said he was unequivocally ruling out sharing the GOP ticket with McCain.
Lieberman’s endorsement of McCain in December and the campaigning he since has done in states such as New Hampshire, Michigan, South Carolina and Florida have stoked speculation that the Arizona senator might choose Lieberman as his running mate.
