“Frankly, I think there is a greater recognition and awareness of the necessity for us to exercise checks and balances,” said Sen. Olympia J. Snowe (R-Maine), noting how much the Nov. 7 election changed the climate on Capitol Hill.

God, I despise these punks. And the so-called ‘moderate’ Republicans are the worst of the bunch. At least with a Tom Delay you know right where you stand. -m
