Obama's 143 Days of Senate Experience

Just how much Senate experience does Barack Obama have in terms of actual
work days? Not much.

>From the time Barack Obama was sworn in as a United State Senator, to the

time he announced he was forming a Presidential exploratory committee, he
logged 143 days of experience in the Senate. That's how many days the Senate
was actually in session and working.

After 143 days of work experience, Obama believed he was ready to be
Commander In Chief, Leader of the Free World, and fill the shoes of Abraham
Lincoln, FDR, JFK and Ronald Reagan.

143 days -- I keep leftovers in my refrigerator longer than that.

In contrast, John McCain's 26 years in Congress, 22 years of military
service including 1,966 days in captivity as a POW in Hanoi now seem more
impressive than ever. At 71, John McCain may just be hitting his stride.
