The John and Joe Show: Lieberman Campaigns for McCain, But Says He’s Not Interested in No. 2 Spot

John McCain and Joe Lieberman have been keeping close company since the Connecticut senator crossed the aisle to endorse his Republican Senate colleague’s presidential bid. Lieberman has been campaigning for McCain in New Hampshire, and today the bipartisan pair have a co-bylined opinion article in The Wall Street Journal arguing that the U.S. military surge in Iraq has worked and praising the leadership of General David Petraeus.

Despite some speculation about a possible McCain-Lieberman ticket, the 2000 Democratic vice-presidential nominee told Reuters he wasn’t interested in being McCain’s running mate. “”Oh yeah. I got that bug out of my system,” he said.
