Admittedly, the 2000 presidential election was an aberration. It was an election decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. Hope we never see another one of those. Of course, had the Supreme Court voted differently and had the Florida recount given Al Gore the Presidency (an unlikely hypothetical to be sure). Had that been the case, one guy running for today’s Democratic nomination would undoubtedly have been Vice President Joseph Lieberman. And that is the irony of today’s bizzare endorsement. Joe Lieberman is the guy that had to leave his party just to hold his Senate seat. So now as an Independent he comes out and puts his support squarely behind John McCain. A Republican. All of which has something to do with some hanging chads seven years ago in a county in sunny Florida. Yup, it just gets curiouser and curiouser. Clearly, John McCain could use a shot of momentum. I can’t for the life of me believe this is going to be it. After all, former Democrat, current Independent, future Republican Lieberman is no Oprah. Heck, he’s no Chuck Norris, even.
