Eyes Are Still on Lieberman

Speaking to reporters, Lieberman said, “I said very clearly ... some of the things that people have said I said about Sen. Obama are simply not true. There are other statements that I made that I wish I had made more clearly. And there are some that I made that I wish I had not made at all, and obviously, in the heat of campaigns that happens to all of us. But I regret that and now it’s time to move on.”

When asked about his speech at the Republican National Convention in which he said Obama was a “young man” who spoke well and would be a good leader in the future, Lieberman did not indicate whether he apologized to his colleagues for those remarks.

“What I said at the convention was to explain why I was supporting Sen. McCain,” he said.
