PORTLAND Sen. Susan Collins this morning described for a group of business leaders from across New England her role in repealing the law banning gays in the military.
In a 30-minute presentation, the Republican lawmaker described the 11th-hour maneuvering against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the waning days of 2010, her work to convince key Republican allies to support repeal and the challenge of opposing a close friend, renowned veteran, Sen. John McCain of Arizona.
"It was exciting to help lead what I believe to be a historic change for our country, but boy it was not easy to get there," Collins said.
Members in the group praised her leadership on the issue and her ability to work with Republicans and Democrats. Some said those traits bode well for some of the significant challenges facing the country, such as federal fiscal reform and tempering political extremism.

Save America from these idiots.
While I don’t hate her, deep distain would apply. Why I cannot in good conscience call myself a Republican anymore. Those who side with the sodomites will suffer just as they do.
So says a typical liberal fembot who scooted into politics on the corpse of a dead husband.
More chutzpah than estrogen.
I was right. I am still waiting for an apology.
"...and when we're all done we get to live high on the hog with taxpayer money for the rest of our lives! hahaha"
Maine has a new republican governor who recently told the NAACP to kiss his butt.
Maine woke up and smelled the traitors.
Typical liberal RINO douchebag...
Hopefully removed from the Senate in the next election, but I’m not optimistic.
Federal fiscal reform and tempering political extremism?
From the communists? Yea "hunny," I mean YOU.
Nary a single marble left in that bag.
No sir, alllll gone. Yet, it keeps making noise...
"If we don't have courageous politicians willing to take on difficult matters and engage people in serious conversation, the country is set for serious setbacks in the future,"
Well Sue, there is a pretty darned good chance you are going to "get excited" several times "in the future."
Sorry, but Maine now ties California for having the “dumbest Senator.” Boxer and Collins reduce the collective IQ of the Senate by a frightening amount.
I am sure that Sue is just breathless and giddy when she tells the tale. This law will fall on its own - people will be involved in all kinds of improper acts and will be booted from the military.
Collins is an oathbreaker who pals around with a man who pals around with terrorists.
Obama-ass-kissing RINO twit.
In the picture, Collins is saying “Who DADT?” to the man-child-in-chief.
So basically, it was all about YOU and how you FELT, with no consideration given regarding how your actions would negatively affect this once-great nation.
I don’t care if a demorat DOES take that seat next time around, this B***H needs to be taken out.
May not have been such an exciting idea had this moron ever spent some time in a fox hole. If you are too stupid to have an appreciation for the importance of the proper frame of reference in dealing with an issue, any issue, you are just too stupid. senator collins, you are just too Stupid.
Thanks for the much needed laugh. No doubt, Suzie feels a tingle running up her leg each time she recollects the historic day she promoted homosexual sex from closet to military service. The few, the proud, the mentally disordered homosexual sex perverts...
