Bipartisan Bud

The Montgomery Advertiser referenced a recent study showing that the two Democratic members of Alabama's Congressional Delegation are more likely to vote with Republicans than most Democrats elsewhere.

According to the study by Congressional Quarterly, Bud Cramer (D-Huntsville) voted with the Republicans on 40% of congressional votes, making him the 2nd most bipartisan member of the 202 member Democratic caucus. Indeed, both Alabama Democrats are more bipartisan than most of their other fellow Democrats. The average Democrat votes with the GOP only 9% of the time, while Artur Davis (D-Birmingham) sides with the GOP 17% of the time.

The Advertiser for one reason or another didn't discuss similar scores for Republicans, but I'll try to dig those up. While it's not a surprise that Alabama Democrats aren't in unison with national Democrats, it is interesting to see numbers testing the conventional wisdom.

That's a really BAD picture...

Either way, I always like to see someone vote their beliefs, not their party.

Oh, the first post says it all. Every whisper campaign in the world has been tried against Bud, but the only "bipartisan" Congressman we actually have is in the Fourth District.

Answer me about the Fourth District guy living with a "friend" for 2 years after law school and maybe you can talk about Bud.

Bud is gay and everybody knows it. it is the best worst kept secret in huntsville. I only hope there is no nick bailey/siegelman connection with campaign boy.

look, if the people of the 5th district dont care if cramer is homosexual, then who cares? as long he votes right, and represents his people with dignity, it doesnt matter what he puts in his mouth. just look at barney frank.

If there are any gay congressmen in AL, based entirely on how they come across on TV, Artur would seem the most likely candidate.

Best evidence still points to the Fourth District guy being gay. He had a marriage of convenience soon after first being elected in order to try and kill the rumor. The wife? A daughter of a well connected Republican who has ran for office several times. Republicans have tried to kill the story by promoting whisper campaigns against Democrats. However, it just won't die

CramerBack Mtn!!! that is a hoot!
Yes, I think Cramer is gay and have for years but I still vote for him. As long as he doesnt catch aids or embarrass us he deserves reelection because he does a good job.
Look at it this way, he isnt a siegelman type pervert and I cant wait for those "juicy" details to come out this spring in trial.
