Two truths are all too often overshadowed in today's political discourse: Public service is a most honorable pursuit, and so is bipartisanship.
Here’s U.S. Senator Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, explaining why she is not running for a fourth term for the Senate as had been expected. Snowe has been a moderate Republican voice and one of the few Republicans willing to cross party lines to forge a compromise. She laments the loss of bipartisanship in the Senate and in politics. As former U.S. Sen. James Jeffords, I-Vermont, did almost a decade ago, she is leaving her post discouraged by a party and a political system that seems to have lost its way. It’s an informative and important piece to read.
