Obama and Lieberman


Jake Tapper of ABC News has the skinny on the Obama-Lieberman exchange on the Senate floor after Joe criticized the Illinois senator’s AIPAC speech.

Neither party is officially talking. But while Lieberman spokesman Marshall Whitman says the conversation was “a cordial and friendly discussion” and Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton says it was “private and friendly,” Democratic sources tell ABC News that the conversation was a stern rebuke to Lieberman for his criticism of the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee on the conference call, as well as a discussion about how far Lieberman is willing to go in his advocacy of McCain, and the tone of the campaign.

Here’s the video of the exchange.
