NBC’s Tom Brokaw asked Sen. Joe Lieberman if he has planned to speak at the Republican convention.

Lieberman said, “Am i going to speak at the convention? It’s not — that decision hasn’t been made. If Senator mcCain feels I can help his candidacy which I think is so important to elect him our next president, I will do it. But I assure you this. I’m not going to go to the convention, the Republican convention and spend my time attacking Barack Obama. I’m going to go there really talking about why I support John McCain and why I hope a lot of other independents and Democrats will do that. Frankly, I’m going to go to a partisan convention and tell them if I go, why it’s so important that we start to act like Americans and not as partisan mud slingers.”
