Lieberman-bashes-Clinton.jpg I found it odd that Bill Clinton came out to support Lieberman after Holy Joe issued such a condemning speech against him when Clinton needed his support more than ever. Watching his speech is very revealing, much more so than just reading the text. It's only thirty seconds, but illustrates his contempt for Clinton perfectly.

I was just reminded to repost Lieberman's support of Bush: (video)

It is time for Democrats who distrust President Bush to acknowledge that he will be Commander-in-Chief for three more critical years, and that in matters of war, we undermine Presidential credibility at our nation’s peril.

I understand that Bill is free to support Joe all he wants, but it reminded me of McCain allowing Bush to kiss his head after he was swiftboated as bad as it gets in the 2000 primary. McCain's forgiveness comes from wanting to further his own political career and a hope to sit in the Oval Office, but Clinton's support of Lieberman is a bit more baffling. Bill has said that he will support the winner of the primary either way, so that's fine and the new Quinnipiac poll is quite revealing.
