McCain's constant sidekick says something
Lieberman vows to work with President-elect Obama

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Joe Lieberman, the 2000 Democratic vice presidential nominee who alienated his party with his high-profile support of Republican John McCain, pledged on Wednesday to put partisan considerations aside and work with President-elect Barack Obama.
During a prime-time address at the Republican National Convention, the Connecticut lawmaker had rapped Obama as an untested candidate beholden to Democratic interest groups.
But a day after Tuesday's election, Lieberman, a fixture beside McCain on the campaign trail, congratulated Obama for his "historic and impressive victory.
"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 said in a written statement. "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."
