Join Jim and Greg as they share three martinis with former Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, who was also the vice presidential nominee for the Democrats in the 2000 presidential campaign. They discuss why Lieberman sees Russia and Iran as the biggest immediate threats to U.S. national security and his blunt assessments of how the Biden administration handled the withdrawal from Afghanistan and how it is approaching Iran . They also discuss why communist China is not as high among imminent threats on Lieberman’s list. And Lieberman offers his reaction to Senators Manchin and Sinema standing up against the rest of their party on the filibuster and describes what it was like for him to stand alone on the Iraq War, opposing a public option on Obamacare and more.

    What struck me is how conversationally agile Senator Lieberman is compared to President Biden. (Lieberman is 9 months older than Biden.)

    Lieberman condemns Biden’s idiotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, and praises Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema.

    That just means he’s not totally brain dead himself.  Low bar.

    How many Democrats agree with Lieberman and, of those, how many have the guts to say so?  He’s somewhere north of the 99th percentile (of Democrats, of course).
