Joe Lieberman for Secretary of State

A possibly vindictive Democratic national party is wondering what to do about Joe Lieberman. My recommendation is for President-elect Obama to make the the bold centrist choice, take Lieberman out of the Senate and make him Secretary of State. He has been willing to sacrifice his political status in order to support the nation at war. Senator Lieberman is dedicated, principled, measured, and right (liberal) on foreign policy and national security. With the real possibility of his being shunned in the Senate, the appointment of Lieberman would salvage his career, solve the Democrats' dilemma, comfort Americans who supported Senator McCain due to concern over Obama's anti-war record, make a strong signal of bridging the partisan divide, and place the right man in the right job at the right time under the right President.

On the other hand, the appointment of Secretary of State Lieberman would signal a foreign policy direction that would be severely disappointing to many of President-elect Obama's supporters.
