I was appalled to learn that John McCain was the only senator who two weeks ago chose to skip a crucial vote on the future of clean energy in America, dooming the measure to fail by just a single vote.
Now, I am even more appalled to learn that this is a pattern with Sen. McCain. On the League of Conservation Voters scorecard, he received a 0 for missing the 15 most important environmental votes in 2007. McCain's score of 0 is lower than members of Congress who died last year.
John McCain's League of Conservation Voters score exposes the real record behind the rhetoric: a lifetime pattern of voting with polluters and special interests, and ducking the important votes.
