(1942-) US politician; full name Joseph Isador Lieberman. He has served in the US Senate since being seated in 1989 as a Connecticut Democrat. In 2000, he was the running mate in Al Gore’s unsuccessful bid for the presidency. Lieberman’s role in the Democratic Party has been strained since losing the party’s primary for Senate re-election in 2006, then winning the election as a third-party candidate, and two years later openly supporting Republican presidential candidate John McCain.
