We remember Senator Lieberman for several reasons:
1) In 1998, he stood up in the US Senate and called out President Clinton's Oval Office behavior. Unfortunately, most Democrats, and specially the party's women, stayed quiet;
2) In 2000, VP Gore selected Senator Lieberman to be the party's VP nominee. We recall that the Gore-Lieberman ticket lost that election. Unlike VP Gore, who became unhinged, Senator Lieberman accepted the verdict and moved on;
3) In 2003-04, it was Senator Lieberman who tried to persuade Democrats to adopt a more realistic view of the Iraq War;
4) In 2006, Senator Lieberman was defeated in the Democrat Senate primary but won the election as an independent anyway; and,
5) Mr. Lieberman became a Trump supporter in 2017.
We wish him a very happy birthday. We remember him as maybe the last of the old Democrats.
The Liebermans wrote a good book about their 2000 campaign memories.
