If you have seen the News, you will know why Republician Senator Snowe has resigned.
Thanks for all your work and Efforts . You are a Class Act.
For my 15 years Voting a Democrat ticket in Maine, I have been impressed with this Fabulous Woman. I think Olympia Snowe has carried her position as Senator with Dignity, and Class. Now that she has resigned I know I was right. She too thinks the Senate and Congress have gone awry.
I wish More Women in Congress would speak up. The Idiots that do not have the concept of why they are there should be fired, kicked out with the rubbish.
A big Thanks To Maine's Woman of the Century----Olympia Snowe I am a Democrat, but right is right
