Quote of the Day — Joe Lieberman

Well, I say that the Democratic Party changed. The Democratic Party today was not the party it was in 2000. It’s not the Bill Clinton-Al Gore party, which was strong internationalists, strong on defense, pro-trade, pro-reform in our domestic government. It’s been effectively taken over by a small group on the left of the party that is protectionist, isolationist and basically will –and very, very hyperpartisan. So it pains me. I’m a Democrat who came to the party in the era of President John F. Kennedy. It’s a strange turn of the road when I find among the candidates running this year that the one, in my opinion, closest to the Kennedy legacy, the John F. Kennedy legacy, is John S. McCain.

Sen. Joe Lieberman

    Wow…and Lieberman is such a visionary that he is the only Democrat who has come to this conclusion. I wondered how he was taking himself seriously when he looked in the mirror every morning!

    McCain should take this quote and run with it too. Lieberman is the only chance he has of a Camelot or Kennedy comparison in this campaign!

    What concerns me is that McCain could choose Lieberman as a running mate. It would be one last opportunity to thumb his nose at the conservatives…
