Lieberman on FOX: Pass the Bailout Because 'It Will Be Good for John McCain'

On Fox News today, Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) discussed the downturn in Sen. John McCain's presidential prospects, saying McCain "is behind now because of the economy." Lieberman then said that he hopes the House passes bailout legislation tomorrow because "it will be good for our country."

"But frankly, it will be good for John McCain too," added Lieberman, explaining that "it will get people back to comparing the two candidates free of a sense of crisis that may make them want to turn against Republicans." Watch it:






Lieberman is right that the focus on America's financial problems has been bad for McCain, but it's not because the "sense of crisis" has confused voters.
