    •  i don't see it that way (0+ / 0-)

      I think he quite voluntarily voted 'present' when he did so.  I just haven't found an instance of it that freaks me out the way other people do.  I dunno.  I take him at his word when he says things about the Constitutionality of issues he agrees with but voted 'present' on.  he is an expert on Constitutional law, and probably made some decisions based on that which would seem arcane to the rest of us.  but nothing I've read about them establishes the pattern his detractors are trying to posit.
