“Voting 92 percent of time with the President doesn’t work here in North Carolina”

Nice catch by America Rising. Here’s now-Sen. Kay Hagan campaigning against then-Sen. Elizabeth Dole back in 2008, arguing that North Carolinians deserve better than a Senator who votes with the president (Bush, in that case) a whopping 92 percent of the time:
“It is time for someone to reach across party lines and finally get something done in this country. Voting 92% of time with the president, whether you support him or not, doesn’t work here in North Carolina.”
Guess who’s voted with President Obama 96 percent of the time? How might that degree of unbending partisan fealty “work” in North Carolina, Kay — especially given these numbers? Hagan’s sky-high Obama loyalty score is also more than a tad ironic in light of her recent refusals to say whether she considers the president an asset to her campaign. Question for Tar Heel State voters: Why won’t Kay Hagan appear publicly with a man whose policies she virtually always supports? Puzzling. It can’t possibly be because she’s trying to fool them into thinking she’s not a servile rubber-stamp for his unpopular agenda, can it?
