Taking a Stand

Barack Obama voted "Present" in the Illinois State Senate 130 times. That's 130 times that he refused to take a stand.
That's 130 times when he said "I'm not for it.... but I'm not against it."   "I'm not going to tip my hand because........"   Why????
There should be a rule against voting "Present".    Our elected leaders should be forced to take a stand.  Vote yes or no.   Not "I Dunno"  or "I can't decide"  or "I'm too freaking chickenshit to tell you how I really feel."
I have never had respect for people who vote "present".   BO did it 130 times and now he's President of the United States.
