From The Raw Story:
Senator Joseph Lieberman, the former Democrat of Connecticut who endorsed the Republican presidential candidacy of Senator John McCain, is moving closer to attending the Republican National Convention in September.
Since Lieberman lost the Democratic primary to challenger Ned Lamont in Connecticut’s 2006 Congressional election, the former Al Gore running mate’s support for Democratic Party causes has drifted. While Lieberman at one time declared his intention to help elect a Democratic president in 2008, he endorsed John McCain’s candidacy in December and has campaigned heavily by his side.
Last week, Lieberman was stripped of his “superdelegate” status, which granted him a guaranteed vote for a Democratic candidate in Denver. Under the so-called “Zell Miller” rule, named for the Georgia senator who spoke out against John Kerry and his fellow Democrats at the 2004 RNC, Lieberman’s endorsement of a Republican candidate makes him ineligible to vote at the DNC.
Ummmmm, shouldn’t it be because he is not a Democrat? He ran under the Connecticut for Lieberman Party ticket.
