17. Wow
"Chafee, known for often disagreeing with the Republican Party leadership, says he did NOT cast his ballot for President George W. Bush in the 2004 election, instead choosing to write-in former president George H. W. Bush as a nod to the Republican Party of his father.<7> Chafee was the only Republican senator to vote against the authorization of military force in Iraq in 2002. He has frequently criticized President Bush's record on the environment and he also expressed concern about the 2004 Republican platform and the direction of the party. He described the younger Bush's Presidency as "an agenda of energizing the far-right-wing base, which is divisive."<8> Soon thereafter, he rejected Democratic overtures to leave the Republican Party, after appeals from other Republican senators to remain in their caucus.<9>"
