According to Talking Points Memo, an official on the 2006 Joseph Lieberman reelection campaign says that they, in TPM's words, "practically begged Barack Obama to come in and endorse him at a critical moment".
But that was during the Connecticut Democratic primary campaign, which Lieberman lost to political newcomer Ned Lamont.
During the general election, which pitted Lieberman as an independent against Lamont and the Republican nominee (whose name I'm too lazy to look up because it just doesn't matter), Obama endorsed Ned Lamont, and even raised money for him.
What was that about chickens and roosting?
