Lieberman turns down UN & Homeland Security Posts

Posted by Tim Tagaris

In a follow-up to an earlier story, it appears Senator Joe Lieberman has turned down not one, but two offers from the White House.  The first offer declined by Joementum was as Ambassador to the United Nations.  The second, Secretary of Homeland Security.

CNN has the scoop.

Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman has twice in recent days said "no" when approached about the possibility of a major job in the second Bush administration, CNN has learned.

The Cabinet vacancy at the Department of Homeland Security was the subject of the latest overture, according to congressional and other government sources. Those sources said the earlier overture was to see whether Lieberman might be interested in becoming the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

So the rumors were true.  Good for Joe turning down the offers.
