According to former Sens. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., and Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., the Democratic and Republican parties are not the same parties they originally joined.  

After watching former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernard Sanders, I-Vt., debate for the primary, Lieberman says he fears for his party’s future. “Obviously I worry and I got interested in public service and politics when President John F. Kennedy was in office; that’s a long time ago,” he told HOH. “And the Democratic Party that I joined was a party that really believed in America’s global leadership, principled leadership. In other words, we’re all about the spread of freedom.”

Lieberman, I-Conn., are contributing writers in the inaugural edition of The Catalyst: A Journal of Ideas from the Bush Institute, which will be compiled of essays surrounding a new theme in every edition. The first edition’s topic is leadership and Kyl and Lieberman’s piece is on American internationalism.
