Buyer's Remorse Over FISA?

Most news-worthy vote in a while. WIthout getting into the implications of the legislation, here's how the two Democrat senators voted:

Aye IL Obama, Barack [D]
Nay NY Clinton, Hillary [D]

I've been hearing this myself, and it's starting to become more apparent, but I think Liberals are getting a little worried that they got the wrong candidate. In the light of a bunch of recent gaffs, did they? And did Clinton just vote against it to embarrass Obama?

Coincidentally (I guess), John McCain gave the "No Vote" action, thus showing that he really knows how voting either way could backfire.

hyperbolist:

If Hillary had won the nomination, do you think her vote would have been the same? As for Obama, he is inartfully positioning himself as a moderate, and it seems insincere and haphazardly contrived. Pity. Have to think he'd do as well as a principled liberal than as a confused centrist with no regard for the Constitution, especially against McCain and his incoherent joke of a campaign.

In a couple places, it was opined that McCain may have "paired" with T Kennedy.

I think the Dems got exactly the RIGHT candidate, and that they ride that losing horse to the finish line.

I can't believe Obama is a typical politician that cares only about himself. I hoped he would change things in Washington.

hyperbolist:

Be serious. Obama has no chance of losing to McCain, but he's doing a very good job of disappointing people who thought he was a different sort of pol than Huggybear and Hillary, who likely conducts focus groups to determine how often she needs to wax her eyebrows.

WildWillie:

Hyper, first of all, stick to Canada's politics. Secondly, how many times has Obama had to start a sentence with; "I regret...". Some enterprising republican support group will make a montage of Obama's greatest regrets. ww

Obambi every day looking more and lore like a post turtle and less and less like a winning candidate.

Zelsdorf Ragshaft III:

How many times have we heard B. Hussein make the statement preceeding the lie about to issue forth, "I have always said"? One thing for sure about Obama is that he has never always said anything. He has changed positions on more subjects than a childs seat in musical chairs. I just keep waiting for someone or some thing to hold him accountable. Seems McCain is not willing to do it to the extent necessary to win the election. Like Romney said. Obama's first position of leadership in his life is to be President of the United States? Shame on the Democrats for foisting this jug eared loser upon us.

John,
This is more or a trend of laziness then an avoidance of issue with FISA.

Following Iran's missile tests this week, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) slammed Sen. Barack Obama's (D-IL) position on the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, declaring, "This is the same organization that I voted to condemn as a terrorist organization when an amendment was on the floor of the United States Senate. Senator Obama refused to vote." CNN's Political Ticker notes a flaw with McCain's attack:

The problem with the critique? McCain also missed that vote on the Kyl-Lieberman amendment on September 26, 2007. Records show that Obama was in New Hampshire and McCain was in New York instead of being in the Senate chamber for the vote in question.

Indeed, McCain -- the most absent Senator -- has missed more than 60 percent of the votes in the 110th Congress.
