Hot Off The Presses: Lieberman to Endorse McCain

Breaking News from The Weekly Standard. This is big.

Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT), former Democratic Party VP candidate in 2000, will announce his endorsement of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) for President in 2008.

If McCain wanted support from the independents, this was a good way to get it, as Lieberman is probably the most respected Democrats (well, ok, technically he's a former Democrat, but he still caucuses with the Dems) out there amongst independents and moderate/centrist Republicans.

Now, this will probably further fuel speculation of a possible VP run for Lieberman on the GOP ticket. Meanwhile, I expect a revival of the "traitor" chants from liberal Democrats directed towards Lieberman.
