    When the going gets tough, the tough go to $28,000/plate dinners with fawning movie stars and other drug-addled retards.

    It's so nice to know that he has a plan and seems to know what he's doing.
    Aside from that, what a pathetic dweeb. Sort of like his cult of followers. I'm sure that once he figures out exactly what's going on he'll make some definitish sorts of moves, and sort of commit himself to a partial plan of action.

    It's the story of his political career. He NEVER takes a stance until the public makes a uninamous decision.

    Thankfully he says he was there to create the Stimulus Package that--

    No, wait, he didn't actually do that; it's just an election lie--er, uhm--stunt. In fact he wasn't even present to vote "present".

    FYI
    there is no voting PRESENT in the usa senate.

    there is such a vote in the illinois senate according to their state rules, but NOT in the USA senate.....

    guess mccain camp is playing with words....

    The wording of a non-vote is irrelevant.. it's a non-vote

    Another great example of this person running for an executive office position (the most important one) who has a habit of not wanting to make a decision
