You would think if you're running for President,
you'd be smarter than this.

War Candidate McCain Didn't Show Up For Four Out Of 14 Latest Iraq Votes
The Hill | Sam Youngman | Posted May 18, 2007 08:58 AM

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is the only presidential candidate in Congress to have missed a major vote on the Iraq war this year, and his absences are not sitting well with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).

Liz Oxhorn, a spokeswoman for Reid, told The Hill, "Sen. McCain has spent considerable time defending the president on Iraq and catering to the Republican base on immigration, but has only managed to show up for four of the last 14 Iraq votes and parachute into [yesterday's] immigration press conference at the last minute.
Who is the real John McCain?"

Right there are about 10 campaign commercials for the Democrats.

COMMENT FROM CLIFF: I will have the answer to your question above soon enough.

Senator McCain has obviously forgotten that he was elected by his constituents to represent them in the Senate, that representation includes being involved in debate and attending to vote. For these services he is amply compensated by the taxpayers of the United States.

If he does not intend to fulfill the job requirements expected of him, he should resign his seat and cease collecting his paycheck. A paycheck incidentally which is way more than the average American makes.
