article imageJoe Lieberman Starts Citizens for McCain Group

By Samantha A. Torrence     Jun 5, 2008 in Politics
Joe Lieberman has officially stood up to represent a new "grassroots" movement called Citizens for McCain. The Group is to show support for McCain no matter what political affiliation.
In a e-mail sent out today Joe Lieberman has asked McCain supporters to help spread a new grassroots type movement on to family and friends. The new group "Citizens for McCain" is meant to reach across party lines to anyone who feels John McCain is the most qualified candidate for the President of the United States of America.
In the letter Lieberman, a Democrat, shows his support for the bipartisan aspect of McCains political career. He describes McCain as a man who puts country before President, political party, and self. Senator Lieberman's full endorsement of McCain has become a boon to the McCain campaign in what is now considered the "primary" election season.
Hillary Clinton is mentioned fondly in the letter stating that McCain has always had and always will have a favorable relationship with Mrs. Clinton. Lieberman goes on to quote a speech made by Senator McCain in New Orleans about the recent co-front runner in the Democrat nomination.
Senator Clinton has earned great respect for her tenacity and courage. The media often overlooked how compassionately she spoke to the concerns and dreams of millions of Americans, and she deserves a lot more appreciation than she sometimes received. As the father of three daughters, I owe her a debt for inspiring millions of women to believe there is no opportunity in this great country beyond their reach. I am proud to call her my friend."
Senator Lieberman conveys in the message that "the phones at the campaign headquarters have been ringing with disaffected Democrats calling to say they believe Senator McCain has the experience, judgment, and bipartisanship necessary to lead our country in these difficult times."
John McCain's reputation amongst many in the United States speaks of a man who is willing to work across party lines and cooperate to pass initiatives and legislation that would promote a better America. That reputation is becoming of even more importance as former Hillary Clinton supporters flock to the McCain campaign and declare support.
Now that the Democrat primaries are coming to a close, it is just a matter of time before John McCain will have to start answering the tough questions posed by Obama supporters in 10 town hall meetings from now till November. The smooth sailing has come to an end and rough waters are ahead. Already Barack Obama and John McCain have been butting heads over Iraq and various other issues.
Opinion: This presidential race is now reminding me of a mating ritual amongst Bull moose. The young spry calf becoming a bull, and the old battle scarred veteran pitting youthfulness against experience to win the affections of the young cow. Which ever Bull is able to court the American people, lets hope they will be loving and caring rather than just passing by with a Wham Bham Thank you Ma'am.
