The Washington Post has a page that shows which Senators have missed the most votes. And surprise, most of them are the ones who have been running for president.
John McCain has missed more than half of the 446 Senate votes. That’s irresponsible, no matter how many big-name bills he’s sponsored. Barack Obama has missed 38%, and Hillary Clinton has missed 24%. Seriously, how do they justify that? They’re simply not doing their job for the citizens of their states.
Jay Tea asks if either of the eventual party candidates will resign from the Senate to run their campaign. Bob Dole did, John Kerry didn’t. In the debates last night, both Clinton and Obama sounded confident they would win the November election. If they’re so confident, go ahead, resign from the Senate since you’re obviously not representing your state like you should be. John McCain should do the same. It’s called being a statesman.
