WASHINGTON, D.C. - Every New Year's Eve, Joseph I. and Hadassah Lieberman get together with three other couples, longtime friends from Connecticut. Till way past midnight, they catch up with each other's lives and talk of their hopes and predictions for the coming year. This year, someone predicted the senator would become Al Gore's running mate. That prospect dominated much of the evening. Hadassah didn't think it would happen.
