Sen. Joe Lieberman (?-CT) now thinks Barack Obama is just great.
In an interview with the Associated Press, examining how he has worked to repair his breach with Democratic Party, Lieberman said that Obama has shown “great leadership”: “Bottom line: I think Barack Obama, president of the United States, is off to a very good start.”
He still thinks he was right to endorse John McCain in the election, but now that it’s over, he can be magnanimous… or a tremendous suck-up.
So what might explain Lieberman’s turnaround? It probably has a lot to do with the White House’s help in him keeping his chairmanship. “President Obama played a very important role, he was very gracious,” said Lieberman. “That obviously sealed the deal and I appreciated it a lot.”
It’s really refreshing to see someone so upfront about their craveness. Most people would blush with shame.
