Lieberman to work with American Enterprise Institute

Published March 13. 2013 4:00AM

Former Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman will join the American Enterprise Institute as co-chairman of the American Internationalism Project, president Arthur Brooks announced Tuesday.

The project is a new effort from AEI's Marilyn Ware Center for Security Studies that will focus on rebuilding and reshaping a bipartisan consensus around American global leadership and engagement. Lieberman will lead the effort alongside AEI Visiting Fellow and former Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl.

"There is an urgent need to rebuild a bipartisan - indeed nonpolitical - consensus for American diplomatic, economic and military leadership in the world," Lieberman said in a statement. "That's why I am grateful to AEI for initiating and sponsoring this project and why I look forward to leading it with my friend Jon Kyl."
