Rats and Tommy Daschle are deeply saddened.

"an atmosphere of polarization"

Could the old bag tell us which DEMOCRAT EVER VOTED against their Party's wishes on MAJOR Legislation, like SHE ALWAYS DID?

I do find it frustrating...that an atmosphere of polarization and 'my way or the highway' ideologies has become pervasive

Yeah, but at least you are cooperating. Highway it is. Happy retirement.

Now Maine can vote for one of their true Dem hacks rather than a subterfuge RINO like Snowe. TERM LIMITS!

Interesting about the $3.4 million....

Andrew Ian Dodge.....what a strange looking senator he’d make. LOL!

Although considering Al Franken....

This came out of nowhere. It’s too soon to say who will be running to succeed her. It’s highly unlikely that Governor Paul LePage will run.

Savage is right, the only way she would retire is she knows she is going down to defeat.

Snowe may be a RINO but she was our RINO

Hmm...I don’t see her losing if she did run. I would say Democrats have a high chance of winning this seat. (R’s have a shot too). But R’s have a great chance of winning the Senate, so she’s doing everything possible to give this seat to the D’s.

She’s a Republican? When did she switch?

Guess the American people won’t get anymore SNOW JOBS from her anymore.

Maine will be a better state when she leaves politics. So will America.

She could have been a contender, but ended up a total loser.
