The Note

The Chicago Tribune published this Lieberman profile by John McCormick on Friday. LINK

McCormick contrasts Lieberman's 2000 VP bid to the 2004 campaign and says: "In the 2000 campaign, as the first Jew on a major party ticket, Lieberman came across as likable, steady and even funny — in a corny, Catskills summer theater sort of way. He seemed a very credible No. 2.

From ABC News' Lieberman campaign reporter Talesha Reynolds:

At a retail stop in Walterboro, S.C., Joe Lieberman was introduced to Carolina Candy. As he walked into the Longhorn Family Steakhouse, the restaurant's owner offered the Senator a taste of the treat, made of a combination of pork rind and fatback. Not kosher.

Lieberman said he couldn't try it, but the owner was persistent. Not wanting to insult, and probably not wanting to detail the intricacies of his diet, Lieberman said he'd take some for the road.

Then it was on to the Vegetable Bin grocery store in Charleston where the Senator brought a new gimmick that he debuted in New Hampshire on Friday. Standing behind three shopping carts, Lieberman explained the difference between his tax plan and those of the other major candidates.

Lieberman's cart was brimming, and it bore a sign reading "tax fairness for all Americans." A cart labeled Clark/Kerry contained a few products, mostly bottles of Heinz ketchup and mustard. The Dean/Gephardt cart was empty and beneath their names the sign read "Repealing all tax cuts equals a middle class tax increase!"

The Sacramento Bee's David Whitney finally gets the profile he crafted last month on the stands, with a scathing analysis from an Ohio poli sci professor: " 'Is he electable?' said Ohio State University political science professor Herb Weisberg. 'Not unless he's away from Washington, D.C., on a day that a nuclear attack wipes out everyone else in government — and even then he would be carrying the wrong message to win.'" LINK
