No one is going to vote against Barack Obama in 2012 because he voted "present" in the Illinois Legislature, before he served in the United States Senator for four years, and before he served as President of the United States of America. No one is going to vote against Barack Obama for re-election because he doesn't have the experience to be president.  Really.  Trust me on this one: it's not going to be a winning argument.
