Whatever happens in this election, we'll always have Lieberman. It is easy to forget now, amid the post-election chaos, just how momentous a day Aug. 8, 2000, was. Al Gore stood before supporters in Nashville (little did we know those may have been his only supporters in Tennessee) and called Lieberman "someone with the experience, the character and the judgment to become the president at a moment's notice." Then Gore said words that should ring in the ears of American Jews from that day on: "With pride in his achievements, I am here to announce my running mate for vice president, Sen. Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut."
