Kerry Vote Watch

The Senate had a full week (for them) meeting four days, mostly to debate the Iraq Supplemental funding bill. Since Kerry has made criticism of the administration Iraq policy the cornerstone of his chaotic campaign for the presidency, he was compelled to show up for two days of work. In the end, Kerry decided to be like Dean and voted against the supplemental for the U.S. troops and to rebuild Iraq and Afghanistan. This will almost certainly launch a whole gamut of new “Senator Splunge”-type contradictory arguments about “opposing the war” and “supporting the troops.” Vietnam may be mentioned.

Days worked: 2
Votes missed: 8
