McCain's Senate Voting Record

David Nather filed an objection today in Beyond the Dome, CQ to Barack Obama supporters' citing CQ data on John McCain's voting last year with Bush 95 percent of the time.

Reason: McCain was absent for 66 percent of the Senate votes last year. Who knows how much of a maverick he might have been with his vote if he had voted?

Sorry 'bout that.

So how's this? - "McCain showed up for one-third of the votes last year. When he showed up, McCain voted with Bush 95 percent of the time."

Does that work for you, David?
