Joe Lieberman Will Not Get Involved in the Election, Everybody's Happy
No one is more independent then Joe Lieberman. One year, he'll run as former Vice President Al Gore's running mate; another year, he'll throw his support behind John McCain and act like 2000 never happened. The senator from Connecticut is a true maverick but, this election cycle, he's calling it quits.
On his decision to not seek re-election: "The reason I have decided not to run for re-election in 2012 is best expressed in the wise words of Ecclesiastes: 'To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under Heaven.'" You heard the man; God has different plans for this one.
