Lieberman: ‘Put Partisan Considerations Aside’ News Wire

WASHINGTON, Nov. 5, 2008 — Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., who supported a Republican for president promised to work with Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., once he’s in the White House.
“I sincerely congratulate President-elect Obama for his historic and impressive victory,” Lieberman said. “America remains a nation of extraordinary opportunity and the American people are a people of extraordinary fairness.

“Now that the election is over, it is time to put partisan considerations aside and come together as a nation to solve the difficult challenges we face and make our blessed land stronger and safer,” Lieberman added. “I pledge to work with President-elect Obama and his incoming Administration in their efforts to reinvigorate our economy and keep our nation secure and free.”

Lieberman’s support of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., might mean he no longer caucuses with the Democrats. Lieberman was a Democrat until he was defeated in the 2006 Democratic primary, though he later won as an independent.
