Sen. Joseph Lieberman (ID-CT) stands on stage in the gym here in Pemberton and asks the standing crowd why they should trust a Democrat who backs their Republican candidate.
"Political parties are important in America but they’re not more important than the country," Lieberman says to applause.
Now former Gov. Thomas Kean takes the microphone from Lieberman and backs him up.
"Talk about courage," he says.
Then he turns his attention to the presidential candidate.
"John McCain is America at its very best," says Kean, and he lauds him for his courage before introducing him, and now McCain stands on stage amid a hail of cheers.
