Lieberman Will Campaign for GOP

Independent Senator Joe Lieberman continues to nettle the Democratic Party by saying that he will campaign for Republican candidates in 2010. Adding insult to injury, the man who was once the Democratic nominee for vice president said he may not seek the party nomination when he runs for re-election in 2012. Lieberman’s move to the right as been an ongoing affair: he supported John McCain in the 2008 presidential election. Just this week, he said he would filibuster a health-care bill that contained a government-run insurance plan. "There's a hard core of partisan, passionate, hardcore Republicans," Lieberman told ABC News. "There's a hard core of partisan Democrats on the other side. And in between is the larger group, which is people who really want to see the right thing done, or want something good done for this country and them—and that means, sometimes, the better choice is somebody who's not a Democrat."
