Liberalism died in 1963

According to an article by Rich Lowry. The theory? President Kennedy was the last reasonable liberal, and his death ended the possibility of reasonable liberals. After his death Liberals rejected the sort of sensible liberalism he represented.
It [Kennedy's death] represented more than the tragic death of a young president, but the descent of liberalism from an optimistic creed focused on pragmatic improvements in the American condition to a darker philosophy obsessed with America's sins.
If only more liberals were sensible like Kennedy. Thank goodness for Joe Lieberman.

Make no mistake, Joe Lieberman is the type of Liberal Lowry desires. The type that basically does what conservatives wants. I'm not sure the real Kennedy would have fit the bill, come to think of it.
