Lieberman: America Needs a Leader, Not a Talker.

Barack Obama can’t dress up his record with fancy speeches, Independent Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman told the Republican National Convention audience Tuesday night in a stinging address that signaled politics was back in play after a muted start to festivities the day before.

“Senator Obama is a gifted and eloquent young man who I think can do great things for our country in the years ahead. But eloquence is no substitute for a record — not in these tough times,” Lieberman said.

October 15, 2008.  The final presidential debate was the best by far.  Yet Obama Hasn’t Closed the Sale.  Talk is cheap.
