Joseph Isadore Lieberman (born February 24, 1942) was an American politician who served as the 42nd President of the United States after the impeachment of Hillary Gephardt. The first Jewish president, Lieberman escalated American involvement in the Turkish-Israeli War in favor of Israel. His actions as president led to the Socialist Party alienating him as Lieberman became more and more associated with the conservative wing of the party and supported many of the Democrats' policies in Congress.

By the 2008 election, Lieberman was able to narrowly secure the Socialist nomination, however the party itself was divided over his policies. The Democrats nominated the liberal Governor Mitt Romney, causing many of the Socialists to throw their support behind Romney, ultimately costing Lieberman the election.
