Joe Lieberman is a man of the middle. For him it is a righteous place where he melds viewpoints to find a voice. Since he was 13, Lieberman has studied the Talmud, which prompts the examination of what different outlooks have in common. In college, where quotas stamped him an outsider, he rose as a leader by bringing together those around him. His political mentor was a Connecticut ward-heeler who ruled by sharing power with his opponents.
