John McCain Watch: No Lieberman As Vice President

McCain and Lieberman June 13

Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Sen. Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn., smiles during a news conference after a town hall meeting in Pemberton, N.J., Friday, June 13, 2008

The answer is NO to the idea of Senator Joe Lieberman as John McCain’s Vice President.

There are many deserving Republicans who can be nominated and who would make excellent Presidents should John McCain not be able to fulfill his Presidential duties:

  • Governor Tim Pawlenty
  • Governor Sarah Palin
  • Former Governor Mike Huckabee
  • Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani
  • Governor Bobby Jindal
  • Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison

Just to name a few.

The first rule in Vice Presidential politics is to do NO harm. A Lieberman choice would demoralize the GOP base because Senator Lieberman is NOT a Republican and never has been.

His voting record and policy positions are to the LEFT of the GOP except with regard to the War on Terror.
