Lieberman on Gore's endorsement

Joe Lieberman was on the Today Show yesterday and was asked about Al Gore's endorsement of Howard Dean. The whole transcript is worth reading, but this is my favorite bit:
Lauer: Just a week ago this is what you had to say about Al Gore, "As president I would turn to him not only for advice but see if he would be interested in holding some high office in my administration. He's an immensely capable, principled, effective person." Has that changed now?

Lieberman: I'd say that's less likely this morning. [Laughter]
What really comes across in this interview is just how much distance Al Gore has put between himself and Al Gore (circa 1996).
