Lieberman: McCain Is Gore’s Heir

By on 6.27.08 | 12:16AM

Guess this means McCain's got the Joe-mentum now:

Sen. Joe Lieberman, the independent Democrat from Connecticut, made his case for the presidential campaign of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., saying, "I'm going to make a provocative statement: in many ways I think John McCain on Foreign Policy is closer to where Al Gore and I were in 2000, then Barack Obama is."
Lieberman made the comment in the midst of acknowledging that on domestic issues ranging from the economy to health care his positions more closely align with Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois. "On domestic policy, you're right. I'm closer on a lot of issues, not all, to Obama," Lieberman said. "But the big difference for me is, McCain will actually get something done. It's one thing to say where you are on a policy and give a good speech, but McCain as president will actually get something done."
Hmmmm. If McCain's within 3 points in Connecticut, does Obama really need to go to Alaska?
