Presidental hopefuls roll call vote on war funding

The data turn out to be pretty bleak if you check the House and Senate votes. On the House side, only Kucinich cast a "No" vote. Ron Paul and Duncan Hunter were nowhere to be found. Had they been present, I think we can guess how they would have voted. On the Senate side, Biden, Clinton, Dodd, McCain, and Obama were all absentees. Somehow I doubt it would take much imagination to figure out how they would have voted.

Of course the absenteeism that seems to plague Congress critters during the Presidential primary season is ridiculous - partially an indictment of the increasing length of campaigning and partially an indictment of the absentees' priorities (or lack thereof).

Kudos to Kucinich for actually managing to show up and do his job.
