As a Senator, he mainly voted 'present'.
After taking some weeks off from the Fool, I see nothing much has changed here. People still post allegations without links to support their "facts" (silly, since Senate voting records are available to the public).
The facts: according to a study by the Boston Globe, Obama voted "present" 129 times as a state senator, representing a small portion — a little more than 3 percent — of the roughly 4,000 votes cast.
As a U.S. Senator, he never voted present.
