Priorities

Well, we know where McCain’s priorities lie:

An Arizona Republic analysis of voting records found that McCain has missed 42 votes this session. That’s 33 percent of the 126 roll-call votes that had been held before lawmakers left town Friday for a weeklong Easter recess.

Only Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.D., has missed more votes than McCain, a contender for the GOP nomination. Johnson, who is recovering from a brain hemorrhage last winter, has been absent for the entire session of Congress.

Leading candidates for the Democratic nomination have posted far better voting records. New York Democrat Hillary Clinton and Illinois Democrat Barack Obama missed only three votes each this session. (source)
