Lieberman Announces Presidential Bid

Stating he is a "different kind of Democrat," Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D-CT) becomes the latest lawmaker to announce his plans to seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2004. He says he won't hesitate to tell his friends when they're wrong, and to agree with opponents when they're right. NPR's Mara Liasson reports.
