According to one of Mark Levin's sources, McCain is opposed to appointing Lieberman, but his advisers are trying hard to talk him into it.
McCain strikes me as someone who likes compliments and hates strident opposition. That doesn't help him fit in with conservatives well. Most conservatives don't mince words. That's what leftists do [unless it's behind your back or through anonymity].
I am puzzled by all this talk about this, we have to be talking about Joe as he is the only Lieberman in the Senate.
Does this make sense for the GOP?:
[Senator Lieberman was first elected to the United States Senate in 1988, scoring the nation’s biggest political upset that year by a margin of just 10,000 votes. Six years later, he made history by winning the biggest landslide victory ever in a Connecticut Senate race, drawing 67 percent of the vote and beating his opponent by more than 350,000 votes. In 2000, Senator Lieberman was elected by another overwhelming margin to a third term.
In 2006, Senator Lieberman was elected to a fourth term as an Independent, because of the strength of his record and his accomplishments for the state. He won the general election by more than 100,000 votes. He remains committed to caucusing with Senate Democrats, but will be identified as an Independent Democrat (ID-CT).]
