How independent of Bush is McCain?

According to Congressional Quarterly, John McCain voted with President Bush 100 percent of the time in 2008 and 95 percent of the time in 2007 on issues where Bush expressed an explicit opinion. Critics will say this proves McCain is nothing more than Bush's third term proxy. But in his defense, the sample is flawed by its size. McCain hasn't bothered to show up for that many votes.
