Former Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) will join former Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) in heading a foreign policy project at the American Enterprise Institute.

"There is an urgent need to rebuild a bipartisan -- indeed non-political -- consensus for American diplomatic, economic, and military leadership in the world," Lieberman said in a statement issued Monday by AEI, a conservative think tank, announcing the "American Internationalism Project."

Lieberman, the vice-presidential nominee on the 2000 Democratic ticket, left the Democrats in 2006 after he lost a primary in his bid for reelection as Connecticut senator, a defeat fueled mostly by grassroots fury with Lieberman for his strident backing of the Bush administration's invasion of Iraq.

He was reelected as an Independent and backed Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in the 2008 presidential elections, although he continued to caucus with Democrats.
