Can't say you didn't see this coming. The Financial Times reports Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign is "vetting" uber-McCain groupie Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) as a potential vice presidential running mate. Lieberman was the Democratic Party's vice presidential nominee in 2000, and, has broken ranks with the Democratic caucus with his outspoken cheerleading for McCain, the Iraq War troop escalation and Iran, among other positions.
One strategist says, "[McCain] loves Lieberman. And he is on the [short-]list because Lieberman has never embarrassed anyone, never misspoken. The first rule is, don’t take someone who costs you votes." Last week, Rod 2.0 reported Lieberman will likely attend the Republican National Convention may have a prominent speaking roles.
