I might be wrong in feeling this, but I can't help but think it was a blessing in disguise that Al Gore had the 2000 election stolen from him. (gasp!)
I mean read the headlines. Joe Lieberman, Al Gore's running-mate in 2000, has turned out to be a hard core Republican even though he insists he's an independent. He is set to endorse John McCain today for goodness sake!
Now that I think about it, today's announcement from Joe shouldn't really surprise me so much since my impressions of both Joe and John McCain are similar in nature. They are both like farts in a windstorm...you never know which way they will go.
