Jewish Sen. Lieberman Possible Running Mate for McCain

Speculation rose Thursday that Jewish Senator Joe Lieberman may be Republican presidential candidate Senator John McCain's choice for vice president. Two Republicans also are considered possibilities, but Sen. Lieberman has the advantage of being a former Democrat, giving him the potential to siphon off Democratic support from presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama.

He was the running mate of Democrat Al Gore in the cliffhanger victory by American President George W. Bush in 2000, but had to win re-election as senator from Connecticut as an independent.
