She also believes that political stagnation is a serious problem. I agree as well!
The difference is that one of us is a law student who blogs about Senators, and one of us IS A UNITED STATES SENATOR.
To boot, Snowe is also a swing vote on many issues, what with the ridiculous 60-vote majority rule. This means that Snowe herself could have done things like, guarantee passage of carbon cap-and-trade, or mild immigration reform. If only there were someone who cared about political stagnation in a powerful Senate seat…
Oh, wait! There was! And her name is Olympia Snowe!
If Sen. Snowe thinks that Senate stagnation is a problem, she can support a change in the Senate’s rules. She, and a gang of centrist senators (Graham, Lieberman, Pryor, Brown, et al.), can demand change in the chamber. I would support her in these endeavors.
Until she does that, though, it’s hard to buy anything she says about her displeasure with Senate stagnation.
