Why does Lieberman sound like Nixon?

I'm not sure that this is an entirely fair comparison, but Joe Lieberman has recently been saying a lot of things that echo what Nixon was saying about the Vietnam war.

Both people are trying to reassure the American voters that they want to end a war that they were very enthusiastic about prosecuting. Under Nixon, the war dragged on another 3 years. Now Joe doesn't have the authority to run the war, but his rhetoric played a key part in cowing Democratic opposition to Bush's "strategies", if they can be called that. For him to now claim to want to end the war is pretty ridiculous and is an obvious "blow with the wind" political ploy.
