Hot off the presses from the McCain campaign, Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) sent out a mass email to McCain supporters announcing a new group, "Citizens for McCain," of which Lieberman is the creator and chair. The Connecticut senator, a former Democrat, caused quite a stir yesterday, when he took part in a conference call organized by the McCain campaign. During the call, Lieberman took issuewith some of Sen. Barack Obama’s remarks before the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee convention in Washington. From the email:
Citizens for McCain is an organization within the McCain campaign for people who put country before political party and support the candidate for President who has a proven record of bipartisanship.
As you know, I caucus with the Democrats as a United States Senator and was the Democrat Party’s nominee for Vice-President of the United States against President Bush and Vice President Cheney.
But first and foremost, I am an American. I have an obligation to do what I think is best for our nation regardless of political party. My love for this country and strong belief in John McCain’s character, judgment, and willingness to work with leaders of both parties has convinced me to support him for President.
The phones at the campaign headquarters have been ringing with disaffected Democrats calling to say they believe Senator McCain has the experience, judgment, and bipartisanship necessary to lead our country in these difficult times. Many of these supporters are former supporters of Senator Clinton.
Senator McCain has had a very good working relationship with Senator Clinton and will continue to do so in the future. In the same New Orleans speech he said:
I guess whatever Obama saidto Lieberman on the Senate floor yesterday didn’t have the desired effect, as it appears Lieberman is on the McCain train full-time.
