LIEberman didn't hear the address but has his attacks ready for Obama anyway

Joe "Help my face is melting" Lieberman didn't actually listen to Obama's address to AIPAC but he got the talking points from somewhere and was able to have a heated discussion with Obama on the Senate floor and I'm wondering if the Senators were secretly on Obama's side and thinking that Lieberman is a tool. Lieberman's problem is that Obama is not tough enough on Iran (remember bush said, "Iran is an existential threat to peace...") While Lieberman and AIPAC and Bush are all beating war drums, Obama hasn't jumped on that bandwagon yet. According to Huffington Post:
"I appreciate many of the very good intentions to Israel and Israeli security that Senator Obama expressed today," said Lieberman. "I thought in the speech there was a disconnect between things Senator Obama said today, particularly in regard to Iran, and things he has said or done earlier either in the campaign or the Senate."

"If Israel is in danger today it is not because of us foreign policy, which has been strongly supportive of Israel in every way," he said. "It is not because of what we have done in Iraq. It is because Iran is a fanatical, terrorist, expansionist state and has a leader and a leadership that constantly threatens to extinguish the state of Israel."
I'm getting pretty tired of all this Israeli ass kissing and war drums with Iran.

Roll call reports that
"Obama dragged Lieberman by the hand to a far corner of the Senate chamber and engaged in what appeared to reporters in the gallery as an intense, three-minute conversation."
"Using forceful, but not angry, hand gestures, Obama literally backed up Lieberman against the wall, leaned in very close at times, and appeared to be trying to dominate the conversation, as the two talked over each other in a few instances."
They tried to appear congenial for the press. heh.
