Lieberman to Endorse St. John McCain

The two are as close as two creaky old Senate relics could be, they support the same wars with the same talking-points on the same Fox News shows and, remember, it was McCain, not Bush, who was the favorite of most Foreign Policy hawks in 2000, so this really shouldn't come as much of a surprise ...


Sen. Joseph Lieberman (Conn.), who was on the national Democratic ticket in 2000, will cross the aisle to endorse Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) tomorrow, Republican sources said.
The two will appear together on NBC's "Today" show tomorrow, then at an 8 a.m. town hall in Hillsborough, N.H.
Independents are an important factor in New Hampshire, and McCain, who won the state in 2000, is now depending on them.
The announcement looks like an effort to stem a stream of independents moving to Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.)
The move, which will help cultivate McCain's moderate status, is an effort to draw attention to the McCain campaign, which needs a splash. Otherwise, it does not make sense for McCain because it will only remind core Republicans why they distrust him.
