Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, who was the 2000 Democratic Vice presidential nominee, endorsed Republican John McCain for President today.
"I know that it is unusual for someone who is not a Republican to endorse a Republican candidate for President. And if this were an ordinary time and an ordinary election, I probably would not be here today. But this is no ordinary time -- and this is no ordinary election -- and John McCain is no ordinary candidate," said Lieberman, who lost the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate last year but won re-election as an Indpendent.
He went onto say: "You may not agree with John McCain on every issue, but you can always count on him to be honest with you about where he stands, you can always count on him to stand for what he believes is right for our country -- regardless of pressure from politicians or vested interests. And you can count on him to be restless in pursuit of progress. In that sense, John McCain is the real change candidate in this race for the Presidency."
