Democratic Veep

NPR's Anthony Brooks reports on the surprise selection of Connecticut Senator Joseph Lieberman as Vice President Al Gore's running mate. Lieberman, the first Jew on a major-party national ticket, is well regarded for his integrity. And he was a strong critic of President Clinton's behavior during the Monica Lewinsky affair. Polls indicate that morality and family values rank high on a list of voter concerns. But Lieberman also parts company with Gore on some issues, such as school vouchers.
