wouldn't it be hard to oppose someone who was their party's VP candidate?



Yes but...........you have to remember that Lieberman endorsed John McCain for president, supported the war in Iraq, was against some of the affordable care act, and ran for pres. as an "independent" democrat. 

My problem with him is, I don't think he's qualified to run the FBI. No law enforcement experience at all. 

I'm with those who suggest that Trump appoint a independent non political person with experience to the job.

I agree.  The day I heard of Comey's firing, I hoped it would be Trey Gowdy.  By that evening I came to realize that we ought to have a non political, experienced law enforcement professional for our new FBI Director.  We need to restore faith in our FBI as the ones who we can count on to follow the facts wherever they lead, without regard to politics.

Amen. I find the Lieberman pick rather puzzling. I think he's a good man who would be fairly unbiased, but I was hoping for someone with true law enforcement experience, not lawmaking experience.

Gowdy already withdrew so he doesn't want the job.
Gowdy should have just said he didn't want it when contacted about it.

He released this...

Not sure what he thinks an FBI director is supposed to do to actually "unite" a country, but whatever.

He's just on a list.
We don't know yet who's really going to be picked.
I wouldn't waste a bunch of time asking why unless he actually gets the pick. There were a bunch of people freaking out that Mitt Romney might be picked Secretary Of State. Well it didn't happen.

and now there is this.

"Controversial Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, who this week announced he will be joining Donald Trump's administration as assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security, plagiarized sections of his 2013 master's thesis on US security, a CNN KFile review has found."
