The Courage to Make a Controversial Stand
A new hero of mine: Olympia Snowe, Republican senator from Maine.
She’s the only senator of her party to vote for the Obama-backed healthcare reform bill this week. And she has ignored right-wing doctrine before: voting against a bill to ban gay marriage.
Hail, Ms. Snowe.
I hope her courage and her thinking set a good example for others on votes to come. I’d never heard of her before this week, but I won’t forget her now.
