Description

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) has co-sponsored a smaller percentage of Republican bills than Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) and former Sen. John Edwards (D-N.C), two of her potential rivals for the Democratic presidential primary in 2008. In the 107th and 108th Congresses, Clinton co-sponsored fewer Republican bills and amendments, as a percentage of total bills and amendments she co-sponsored, than either Kerry or Edwards, according to an analysis conducted by The Hill. She is on pace to continue that trend in the 109th Congress, trailing slightly behind Kerry. Her proposals have also failed to attract Republican co-sponsors at the same rate as Kerry’s. In the 108th Congress, 17 percent of her bills and amendments attracted at least one GOP co-sponsor, compared to 21 percent for Kerry, who was running for president during that time. In the 107th Congress, 46 percent of Kerry’s bills and amendments were co-sponsored by at least one Republican; for Clinton, the figure was 28 percent.
