Lieberman won’t endorse Obama or Romney in 2012

It seems Joe Lieberman is finally ready to fade into political obscurity.  The former U.S. Senator and pervious Democratic vice presidential candidate will not be endorsing anyone for president in 2012.

In 2008, the Democrat made headlines by endorsing John McCain over Barack Obama (for what good it did).  This year Lieberman is not running for re-election and is avoiding the “nastiness“.

“This year, when it comes to the presidential election, I’m just going to do what most Americans do: Go in the voting booth on election day and in the privacy of the booth cast my vote,” Lieberman added. “This is a very important election. One thing I will say — it seems obvious from the polling that is going on the whole year — the American people are very unsettled; they are uneasy about the economy, about the government.”

Or maybe Lieberman realized that Mitt Romney is no better than Barack Obama.
