Will Joe Lieberman go Republican?I've been wondering why everyone in the US seems to be counting Joe Lieberman - who ran as an Independent - as being in the Democratic column in the US Senate. Now, the Boston Globe is reporting that Joe just might go Republican.
Hat Tip: Allahpundit
Asked on NBC's "Meet the Press" if he might follow the example of Sen. Jim Jeffords of Vermont, who left the Republicans in 2001 and became an independent, ending Republican control of the U.S. Senate, Lieberman refused to discount the possibility.I'd be thrilled if Joe did it. It would be a proper response Daily Kos and other extreme leftists who worked to defeat him.
"I'm not ruling it out but I hope I don't get to that point," he said. "And I must say -- and with all respect to the Republicans who supported me in Connecticut -- nobody ever said, 'We're doing this because we want you to switch over. We want you to do what you think is right and good for our state and country,' and I appreciate that."
A spokeswoman for Lieberman would not elaborate when contacted by The Associated Press.
And Joe would put in a good word for Israel at the White House....
