Had Gore, or Kerry for that matter become president the country, imo, would be in an even worse situation then it is now.
CQ tries to determine what the president personally, as distinct from other administration officials, does and does not want in the way of legislative action. This is done by analyzing his messages to Congress, news conference remarks and other public statements and documents.
So, these studies only track votes when the President has an explicit, stated opinion on a bill. According to CQ, Senator John McCain has voted with President Bush 100% of the time in 2008 and 95% of the time in 2007:
Year Support Oppose
2008 100% 0%
2007 95% 5%
2006 89% 11%
2005 77% 23%
2004 92% 8%
2003 91% 9%
2002 90% 10%
2001 91% 9%
[bJohn McCain and George Bush believe the same things on virtually every issue - the list of their agreements goes on for pages. But a better judge of a politician’s views is not how he talks, but how he votes. John McCain - when it counted and when he showed up in the Senate to do his job in 2008 - never deviated from George Bush’s position. Not once. 100%.
It’s all there in black and white. John McSame - just like Bush.

Hey Bert dude, if McCain doesn't know squat about the economy, Iraq or national security as you claim, yet people are still trusting him more on these issues than they are Ubama, that's not really saying much for "your boy" is it?

Considering the Hillary will most likely win the popular vote in the democratic primary, and therefore should wind up taking the Nom in August if the democratic party wants to hang onto any level of credibility, people will be able to choose Hillary over McCain.
I am looking forward to the Clintons back in the white house. Bring back the prosperity.
Yeah, typical Obama supporter logic, democracy doesn't mean counting all the votes to these elitists.
