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.

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.
