Wednesday Women- Olympia Snowe


I was extremely disheartened to hear that Senator Snowe has announced her retirement......This state has now lost a great senator...But she was a moderate....she worked across the isle with Democrats for the good of the people....that is a death knell in the Conservative Party....Sen. Snowe voted with Democrats on issues concerning healthcare, women, gays, family planning that angered the right wing... she was punished, she was denied leadership because she would not walk goosestep with the GOP... this is a well known fact...Most of the moderates have been pushed out or defected to the Democratic Party....

I am not saying that the Democratic Party is perfect...it is not...Both parties need to start working together...the hate rhetoric of some as well as the push to introduce laws that punish anyone that is of a different philosophy, race, creed, religion & orientation has to stop....

I want to thank Senator Snowe very much for her outstanding service to this state and country....For showing common sense, logic in voting what she felt was best for this country...I have voted for her every election that she ran...even over other democrats....that is how much I admired her....Her advocacy for veterans was unquestioning, she helped the hubby and myself a number of times when we were getting the runaround from the VA...

I know that whatever path she chooses, this country will benefit from her wisdom, compassion and expertise....her voice will be heard...Of that I have no doubt...

"From her unwavering support for our troops, to her efforts to reform Wall Street, to fighting for Maine's small businesses, Senator Snowe's career demonstrates how much can be accomplished when leaders from both parties come together to do the right thing for the American people,"
                           President Barak Obama
