Senator Snowe Followed The Right Course

I’m no great fan of Republican “moderates” or of any type of Republican.

But Senator Olympia Snowe followed the right course today when she voted in favor of a health insurance reform bill today in a Senate committee.

Maybe my longstanding distaste for Republican moderates is displaced at this point.

Maybe at this point there are so few of them that I should simply admire them for the ability to hang on. It is possible they are doing the country a service by at least offering an option to the Republican Party of something other than full craziness.

  2. Prediction: Sen. Snowe will be rejected by the extreme and dominant elements of her party, and join we who are not afraid of democracy by Nov. 2010.

    Disclaimer: Of course, I don’t know anything and shouldn’t really be listened to.

  3. Bill–The bill will extend coverage to many who lacked it. It will also help people who get sick in the future and would have otherwise lost coverage. It may not be perfect, but what a relief and a help it will be to so many.

    Stan–I bet she could get elected Queen on maine right now. Her name will be recalled in books written on this subject 20 years from now while most of her Republican colleagues will be long forgotten.

  4. Obama and everything his administration stands for is the devil. Democrats should form their own country.. unfortunately they would come back after their society completely failed…
