Sen. Joe Lieberman is crossing party lines and endorsing Republican Sen. John McCain for president.“Being a Republican is important. Being a Democrat is important. But you know what’s more important than that? The interest and well-being of the United States of America,” the Democrat-turned Independent said in announcing his decision Monday morning in New Hampshire.
“Let’s put the United States first again, and John McCain is the man as president who will help us do that,” he said.
Lieberman, the Democrats’ vice presidential nominee in 2000, said the next president needs to “break through the reflexive partisanship that is poisoning our politics today and stopping us from getting anything done in Washington.”
