    the missed votes of Kerry and Edwards. IIRC, Cheney raised it in the VP debate.

    Republicans in the Senate manipulated the votes all during 2004 in order to maximize the number of votes Kerry missed - so as to be able to embarrass him with it.

    Dems in the Senate in 2008 are not doing that. So it's hard to make a straight comparison between Kerry and McCain. We can however compare McCain to Obama, and McCain loses badly by that comparison.
