Since they announced their candidacy for President, the Dem hopefuls have been missing some votes. A lot of votes.

Votes missed this year
Gephardt 89%
Kerry 43%
Lieberman 29%
Edwards 19%
Graham 17%

But my man Dennis Kucinich? How 'bout none.

Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich of Ohio, a longshot in the Democratic presidential race, has maintained a perfect attendance record. He rushed back to Washington even to vote for naming a post office after Walt Disney.

"It's called the House of Representatives," Kucinich said. "We are called representatives If you don't show up for a vote, you're not representing people."

(The New York Times also reported on this, citing slightly different voting records.)
