Lieberman Not Endorsing Dodd for President..

at least, not yet. On Meet the Press yesterday:

WASHINGTON Sen. Joe Lieberman passed up an opportunity Sunday to endorse fellow Connecticut Senator Christopher Dodd's bid for the Democratic nomination for president.

Lieberman, I-Conn., won a fourth term in November as an independent candidate after losing the Democratic nomination to Greenwich businessman Ned Lamont. Dodd backed Lieberman in the primary, but supported Lamont in the general election, even appearing with the Democratic nominee in TV ads.

Asked on "Meet the Press" whether he endorses his Senate colleague's presidential campaign, Lieberman said he's avoiding presidential politics, at least for the time being.

"I've worked closely with Chris Dodd for 18 years," he said. "His experience, his ability makes him a very credible candidate for president. I wish him well. I've had a lot of politics over the last two years. I'm staying out of any presidential campaign for a while."

Dodd appeared with Lieberman on the program and laughed as his colleague began to answer the question. "Oh, don't put Joe in that position," he told moderator Tim Russert.

Who can blame Lieberman, after Dodd threw him to the wolves during his campaign last year?

Lieberman may end up endorsing Dodd in the end. He may endorse someone else. He may endorse no one. But I like the idea of him making Dodd sweat.
