    There is noise about McCain choosing Lieberman as his VP, especially as Lieberman is speaking at the GOP convention. What do you think?

    No to VP. I'd be OK with a cabinet position perhaps.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    Lieberman as his VP: Can't find someone within your own party? WTF?
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    x 2. I wonder when he'll just flip parties?

    Same here. At McCain's age, would hate for the Dems to win the election by default. A cabinet position is fine.

    Damn Elspeth.....he has a lot of appeal. But can he carry Ohio and Florida? More to the point....SHIT, he could carry California. the primaries and the last election show he has a strong following.

    Elspeth, you are full of surprises.:)

    LOL!!!

    Actually, I have been hearing some noise about Lieberman and my conservative friends always liked him. There is also the fact that Senator Lieberman was challenged in 2006 (in the Democratic primary) by Ned Lamont who was backed by none other than Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. These two far lefters were flanking Lamont when he gave his victory speech. (You just KNOW Donna Brazile was in the background somewhere!) The more centrist Lieberman went independent and eventually won the election as an independent but he could only do that because he had strong Republican support.

    Now Lieberman is speaking at GOP convention. As a strong backer of Israel and the current war against terrorism, Lieberman also brings more socially tolerant credentials, though he is in no way a leftie wingnut. He is also a religious Jew and that carries weight in some quarters.

    I don't know what his role in a McCain administration will be--if any--but when I heard it floated that he might be being considered for VP, I wondered how it would fly with conservatives. I would feel very comfortable with a McCain/Lieberman ticket, but then I am a centrist Dem.
