Joseph Lieberman for President?

“So, what’s not to like about Joe? Well, once you get beyond his style and his Big Money prowess, he looks nearly identical to George W. Bush on most key issues: Iraq, trade, missile defense, homeland security, corporate tax favors and faith-based gestures. He’s positioned himself to run to the right of Bush on war and the military and to his left on the environment and abortion. Whether this poll-driven Republican-lite posture can work politically remains to be seen. What’s clear, however, is that at a time when the nation desperately needs a fundamental debate about core issues — how to meet real security threats, how to get the economy working for working people, how to defend America without trampling the very liberties that define America — Lieberman would rather waltz than fight.”

Since Senator Lieberman declared today that he is officially in the race for the Democratic nomination, I thought this would be a good time to post this piece from . Lieberman is just about the last man the Democrats should be running for President, and even if he did get elected he would do pretty much nothing to reverse the disastrous course that Bush Jr. has set this country on. I’ve never liked him as a Senator from my state, I didn’t want him as the VP under Gore, and I don’t him as President. Just say no to Joe!
