Sense of the Senate: WWMUD?

The Senate passed a "Sense of the Senate" 72 to 25:

To express the sense of the Senate that General David H. Petraeus, commanding general, Multi-National Force-Iraq, deserves the full support of the Senate and strongly condemn(s) personal attacks on the honor and integrity of General Petraeus and all members of the United States Armed Forces.
Senator Ken Salazar voted for this. All of the Democrat candidates who are currently Senators voted against it, except Obama. Obama was out to lunch when the vote occurred, it would seem. He couldn't be troubled to vote, although he was close at hand and made the vote immediately before this vote and the vote immediately after it.

It's time for someone to ask WWMUD? What WOULD a Senator Mark Udall do? He pays lip service to supporting the troops, but he is far to the left of Ken Salazar as our scoreboard of liberal blogger and msm comments indicates.

Our friends at will want to know. If he doesn't support them, they might even gin up a primary challenger for him. Likewise, patriotic people, whether or not they support the war, will want to know if he really supports the troops or if those are just convenient words that he mouths at convenient times.

Would Mark Udall be "Out to Lunch" on this issue, too?
