A governor or congressman who announces his candidacy for the office of president of the USA really ought to give up his present office. The US senators who missed the most votes during the prelude to the catastrophic 2008 election were Obama, Clinton, and McCain. (To be fair to Obombast and Hillary [sic], their legislative absences actually benefited our country.) Considering how many issues currently face the leaders of a state that many expect to lead the world, it's hard enough for a politician to do his own job without devoting most of his time and resources to seeking another.
