Lieberman's Endorsement

UPDATED with video.

Speaking at a VFW hall in Hillsborough, New Hampshire Monday morning, Connecticut's Independent Democratic Senator Joe Lieberman endorsed Republican Jon McCain for president. Lieberman said his endorsement of McCain is based primarily on their common view of U.S. foreign policy:

"I know it's unusual for a Democrat to be supporting a Republican, but there are some things that are more important than the political parties," Lieberman said in a joint appearance with McCain on Fox News. "One is friendship, and the other is that I happen to think this guy is the best of all the candidates to unite our country across political lines so we can finally begin to solve some of the problems people have in this country and, of course, to lead us in the war against Islamist terrorism."

[. . .]

"At town hall meeting after town hall meeting, people stand up and say, 'Why can't you all work together for the good of the country?' I think that's what this message is today with this endorsement," McCain said.

Isn't it sad that working together for good of the country seems unusual?
