Bull Moose Blog has an Interesting idea for State...


The Bull Moose blog has advocated that United States Senator Joseph Lieberman (D, of Connecticut) ought to succeed General Colin Powell as Secretary of State.  This is a tantalizing idea for many reasons.  First of all, Senator Lieberman, now that Zell Miller has left the Senate, is the most Conservative Democrat in that body, so if he would accept the nomination, he is palatable to us.  I also think that it is important to place a man of Senator Lieberman’s disposition into the state department.  His religious and ethnic background (Senator Lieberman is of Jewish heritage and practices the orthodox faith) are irrelevant to me, but in the war on terror, I can see Israel bring thrilled with this choice.  The nomination would send a strong message to the terror merchants of the world that W is as serious as ever about putting every last terrorist on the ash heap of history, further aligning us with Israel’s super-tough anti-terror policies.


"Moreover, with this nomination, we are looking at the possibility of a 56th Republican seat in the Senate.  Gov. Rell is a Republican, and I doubt that she’d appoint a leftist wacko to a seat held by a principled conservative man.  Forget his party affiliation; Senator Lieberman would be a wise choice for many reasons."

Back to Joseph Lieberman, Conservativity joins the Bull Moose Blog and rolls the snowball downhill.  We recommend Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut as Secretary of State.
