She represents the views of her constituents. Snowe held health care town hall meetings over the summer without all the yelling and screaming like we saw in other places. This is what the people of Maine want her to do. Is the bill perfect? No. Is it the best congress can do? No. However it is a step on the right direction. So you vote in your state and we’ll vote in ours, fair?

She has shown herself to be highly intelligent, fiercely independent and thoughtful. If we had at least 500 more like her in Congress, then more good law could be passed that would benefit the people of our nation!!

No one, even most people from Maine, would never know who she is otherwise. Great reason to vaote for the health bill. We wonder why the country is going to hell.

All these people are on the same ship, keeping us fighting amongst ourselves in the galley while they sip wine on the officers’ deck.
