Progressive Punch: Is Obama really the most liberal member of the Senate?

The National Journal says Obama is the most liberal senator in 2007. By the way, they also “calculated” that Kerry was the most liberal senator in 2004. Is this a coincidence that once the Democratic party elects it presidential candidate they become the most liberal senator? Or does the Democratic party want the most liberal candidate to run for President? If so, what about Dennis Kucinich, Bernie Sanders, Russ Feingold, to name only a few?
