African-American Political Pundit: “Lieberman is really a Republican”

Hillary Clinton has released a statement on Joe Lieberman’s announcement yesterday that he will petition his way on the November ballot if he loses the primary to Ned Lamont:

”I’ve known Joe Lieberman for more than thirty years. I have been pleased to support him in his campaign for re-election, and hope that he is our party’s nominee,” the former first lady said in a statement issued by aides. ”But I want to be clear that I will support the nominee chosen by Connecticut Democrats in their primary,” the New York Democrat added. ”I believe in the Democratic Party, and I believe we must honor the decisions made by Democratic primary voters.”

….”The challenges before us in 2006 call for a strong, united party, in which we all support and work for the candidates who are selected in the Democratic process,” Clinton said in her statement of Tuesday.

Good for Hillary, sticking with the Democrats. Jane at Firedoglake said yesterday she’d take this position, as I noted in discussing Lieberman’s statement here.



African-American Political Pundit says: “Let’s be clear on Mr. Joe Lieberman.


Many in the African-American community, like the larger community, feel he has walked like a Republican, talked like a Republican, acted like a Republican, and has voted like a Republican on many key issues, including his continued support of Bush policies in Iraq. The reality is this U.S. Senator is a Republican

I’m surprised he is not running as a Republican.

  1. Hello,

    Interesting comments you have on this blog.

    Perhaps you should visit Congressman Ron Paul’s webiste? Congressman Ron Paul is a man who truly believes in freedom and he is running for the Republican nomination for president in Texas.

    Why don’t you visit his website, watch his video and show him your support?
