Just how much United States 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.

Funny they should mention Reagan and Lincoln. The former had no national government experience prior to his running for president, and the latter had only a single two year term in the House.

Of course, if McCain's 26 years in Congress are great, certainly Ted Kennedy's 46 are far more impressive. Somehow, I doubt the original author would agree with such a sentiment.

BTW, claiming proudly that you keep leftovers for 143 days should probably disqualify you from making any sorts of serious political observations.
