Bill to ask Lieberman not to run outside the party?

Did you think it was strange when President Bill Clinton announced he will campaign for Joe Lieberman in the primary? I certainly did, especially after I remembered that Joementum was the first Democrat to speak out against Clinton on the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Remember this…

So you can imagine how surprising it was to hear that the President had forgiven this stab in the back and decided to support a candidate who does not see eye to eye with him on quite a few issues. Then I saw that LamontBlog is reporting a rumor that surfaced a few days ago when President Clinton first agreed to campaign for LIEberman. If true this could be wonderful, if not no sweat because Bill and Hillary will campaign for the winner of the primary and his name will be Ned Lamont.

Here’s the rumor…

Again, it’s great that Sen. Clinton and President Clinton will both be supporting the winner of the August 8th primary. It has been suggested elsewhere that Bill might sit down with Joe today and try to convince him to abide by the results of the primary. It’s sounding more and more like that’s part of how (and why) Hillary – one of the first senators to come out and say she would unconditionally support the Democratic candidate in November – convinced Bill to come campaign for Joe.

  1. Very interesting and quite logical.

  2. You can’t trust Lieberman to keep his word — if he even gave it to Clinton. He’s in high denial. He has the same affliction as did Harold Stassen.

  3. The only “affliction” Harold Stassen had after losing the Republican nomination to Dewey was his drive to bring up issues he felt were important, and to do so by running for public office.
