WASHINGTON - AP Mon Jan 29, 12:00 AM ETConnecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman' the Democratic vice-presidential nominee in 2000 who won re-election as an independent last year, says he is open to supporting any party's White House nominee in 2008.

From the current field of candidates I think it would be safe to say, Leiberman will be endorsing a republican.
Other than Obama the current democrat candidates appear to be campaigning with the same "republicans are bad" & "get out of Iraq" message, as in the last election. A campaign tactic which may backfire on them by the presidential election.
Leiberman is the one democrat who I feel uses common sense, has a true understanding of the "Big Picture" in the middle east and does not act like your "typical" democrat.
His refusal to support the non-binding resolution against the "troop surge", and willingness to filibuster this resolution, shows he is more republican than some of the republican disappointments we have in Washington, George Voinovich being one of them. King
