    All this talk of change floating around ... here are a few numbers that tell part of the story ... that was PART OF THE STORY .. not the entire story.

    CQ.com - CQ Vote Studies

    McCain: Presidential support 90% .... Party unity 81%
    Obama:. Presidential support 40% ... Party unity 96%

    For the heck of it I threw some other hopefulls and wannabees in. Kucinich is the most anti-Bush of all of them ... 19%.

    D - Chris Dodd: Presidential support 50% ... Party unity 96%

    D - Dennis Kucinich: Presidential support 19% ... Party unity 95%

    pretty cool the chart is tabulated while you watch so it's current.

    It does all the Congress and Senate.

    Instead of copy shortcut I just did copy and I pasted it ... should work now.

    There's a small box at the bottom ... if you click it it gives just 2008 ... I did not use that one.

    Nice. You can clearly see Kennedy Kerry and Obama have almost the exact same voting percentages. Nothing but, partisan politics. No thought process necessary. And a lot of these things are votes on giving someone some type of honor. But, when they can throw out he voted with Bush 90% of the time why bother pointing that fact out. :rolleyes:
