Joe says no to Homeland Security, UN posts
I don’t know why he’d want the job anyway. Pretty thankless, though he’d probably fly through a confirmation, something Bernie Kerik surely would not (wouldn’t those hearings have been dee-lish?). But as others have said, he sometimes sounds like a DINO, so he would be the one Dem Bush would probably have in the cabinet in some capacity. Lieberman rejects White House overtures (CNN):
Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman has twice in recent days said “no” when approached about the possibility of a major job in the second Bush administration, CNN has learned.
The Cabinet vacancy at the Department of Homeland Security was the subject of the latest overture, according to congressional and other government sources. Those sources said the earlier overture was to see whether Lieberman might be interested in becoming the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
White House officials declined comment, saying they do not discuss personnel matters.
