7. Win for demcracy
Whether you like his politics or not, this action was a win for Democracy. He was elected to represent the people that voted for him. When an important vote came up, our society was able to ship him home so that his constituants would be properly represented.

A better solution would be to excuse him from military duty while he's a legislator. That way he's there all the time. It's not like he's shirking his duty as he's serving his country as an elected official.
