CNN LIVE EVENT/SPECIAL

Joe Lieberman Addresses Dem. Convention

Aired July 29, 2004 - 20:20   ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.


WOLF BLITZER, CNN ANCHOR: A lot of speakers will be pointing to John Kerry, including Joe Lieberman, he was the vice presidential candidate only four years ago. Let's listen briefly to see what he has to say.
SEN. JOE LIEBERMAN (D-CT), FMR. PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Dear friends, standing before this Democratic National Convention tonight naturally reminds me of that thrilling night four years ago when I had the honor to accept your nomination as vice president of the United States of America...

(APPLAUSE)

... the first Jewish-American ever to be so honored.

(APPLAUSE)

And for that barrier-breaking opportunity, I shall be forever grateful to Al Gore and the members of this great Democratic Party.

(APPLAUSE)

You proved that the American dream was alive and well in 2000. And, incidentally, on Tuesday night, in this hall, Barack Obama proved that the American dream is still alive in the Democratic Party.

(APPLAUSE)

LIEBERMAN: That was a heck of a campaign in 2000, wasn't it? Don't get me started. But this is another campaign and campaigns are always about the future, not the past. And I'm proud to stand before you tonight and say that America's future will be a lot brighter with John Kerry and John Edwards in the White House.

(APPLAUSE)

Let me tell you this...

BLITZER: Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, he was the vice presidential candidate for the Democrats four years ago, speaking to this Democratic National Convention tonight. There are a lot of speakers, all of them will be praising John Kerry and John Edwards.
