For all of the "things would have been perfect with Gore" people responding to news of Ralph Nader's announcement, I would like to remind them that the VP candidate was Joe Lieberman. I might have voted for Gore, but there was NO WAY I could have voted for him once Lieberman became the VP candidate. That man is a wacko war-monger, and he serves as the head of John McCain's state campaign in Connecticut.
Here is a nice item from Think Progress:
On the 2/12 edition of Bill Bennetts radio show, Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) explained that he was supporting Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) for president because he believes that withdrawal from Iraq would abandon the country to the killers and empower them to come after us again. McCain will never let that happen, claimed Lieberman.
The guy has been almost always right on the big issues of foreign policy over the last twenty years, said Lieberman. Thats why I want him to be my president, he added.
Also, read this post by Howie Klein on Huffington Post on Lieberman's homophobia, reporting that he "sided with Jesse Helms on removing federal money from public schools that counsel suicidal homosexual teens that it's OK (or 'an acceptable lifestyle,' in Lieberman's and Helms' disapproving parlance) to be gay."
Letting the Democratic Party know that they have your vote, no matter what kind of candidate they choose for us, is stupid.
