I would have to give the award to Jack Reed, with honorable mentions to Kent Conrad and Judd Gregg.

Good choice. His voting record is excellent.

When I took that ontheissues quiz, he came out as the Senator my views are closest to, along with Fritz Hollings and Russ Feingold.

On the GOP side, for 2016, look out for Gov. Phill Kline (KS), Gov. Ralph Reed (GA), Gov. JD Hayworth (AZ), Sen. David Vitter (LA), among others.

I used to get him as #1 when I was more of a liberal, this time I got another very underrated Senator - Gordon Smith.  Kerry, Jeffords and Boxer? were my #2, #3 and #4

I agree with you that Kerry is terribly underrated. Hes quite the senator and I feel he should get more recognition for his work.

Byron Dorgan. A liberal senator who is popular in a conservative state. He must be using Jedi mind tricks.

Rick Santorum. I say this because a far-right extremist Senator managed to defeat an incumbent Democrat, survive reelection six years later, and have a fairly high media profile. And the most amazing part is that he is from Pennsylvania, which has been a blue state in the last four elections. I don't like him much, or agree with his politics at all. But he does have some kind of skill.

Sometimes Conrad takes the more liberal position, for example Dorgan voted for and Conrad voted against the Iraq war.

All the more reason he deserves to be in my signature!

You are so right on that one.  His attacks on Cleland were downright disgusting.

Anyway, I believe that Lindsey Graham from my home state of SC is underrated.  I don't usually agree w/ him at all, but he has shown flashes of independence that make him something more than just another rank-and-file politician (cough Henry Brown (SC-1) cough)

Yes, Chambliss is despicable. Unbefitting of the great state of Georgia

Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, on the other hand, is one conservative Republican I'll admit to having a favorable opinion towards. If voting scores are any barometer, he doesn't seem to be as economically conservative as many of his colleagues
