In a move that surprises absolutely no one, Democrat Republican Independent Bassett Hound McCain Lapdog Joe Lieberman tells "The Hill" that he's leaving open the possibility of giving the keynote address, likely on primetime television, at this year's Republican National Convention.

“If Sen. McCain, who I support so strongly, asked me to do it, if he thinks it will help him, I will,” Lieberman said in a brief interview.
