Connecticut’s senior senator Joe Lieberman has been a guest on Face the State numerous times over the past 30 years as senator, and attorney general. This Sunday he’ll be talking about his final year in office, the race to succeed him, and his new book.
The focus of the new book is his Jewish faith and his observance of the sabbath. We talked about the Stamford independent has been able to balance his religious practices and his senate obligations. As the first Jewish candidate on a major party presidential ticket in 2000, Lieberman was something of a trailblazer. I asked him about Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, a Mormon, and whether his religion will be a factor in the race for White House.
As you may have heard, Lieberman talks about sex on sabbath in the new book, but we don’t address that this Sunday. The senator will appear on Better Connecticut on January 3, and Channel 3’s Kara Sundlun handles that discussion.
During his Face the State taping, the always direct Lieberman also talked about the death of North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong Il, and what he will miss most about the senate.
You can watch the entire interview right here that aired Sunday morning at 11 on Face the State, only on Channel 3.
