mediabistro covers georgeW and georgeW covers Joe Lieberman all over Connecticut

First Presidential Press Conference In New Digs [FishbowlDC] Transcript:

"Q: Would you campaign against Senator Joe Lieberman, whose Republican candidate may support you, but he supports you, too, on Iraq?

THE PRESIDENT: I'm going to stay out of Connecticut. (Laughter.)

Q: You were born there.

THE PRESIDENT: Shhh. (Laughter.) I may be the only person — the only presidential candidate who never carried the state in which he was born. Do you think that's right, Herman? Of course, you would have researched that and dropped it out for everybody to see — particularly since I dissed that just ridiculous looking outfit."
