    I had to stop myself from adding more votes at some point.  And I do wish OpenCongress kept track of "with other party" and "against other party" as well.  I'd like to know all the times Manchin voted with most Democrats against most Republicans.

    I find the splits within the Democratic caucus to be very interesting--despite generally strong party unity, there are quite a few votes that split the Democratic caucus significantly, and they aren't always on the left/right dimensions you expect, even if those do hold on average.  I might try putting a more comprehensive list together for another diary.

      important stat to show manchin is closer to sanders than brown. that's a good talking point that can be backed up with hard evidence now.
