Snowe Blames Partisanship

February 29, 2012
"You cannot solve a problem without talking," she said. "The Senate is based on consensus building. That was the vision of the Founding Fathers. If we abandon that approach, we do it at the expense of the country and the issues that we need to address to put us back on track." The paralyzing partisanship did not just come from one party, but both, she explained. She alluded to her time starting in the Senate when Bob Dole, as the Senate majority leader, would attempt to "work it out." This, she said, does not happen as much these days in an "all or nothing" body. During her almost 18-year tenure in the Senate, Snowe has often crossed the aisle to work with Democrats. Her retirement is seen as a potential blow to Republican hopes of regaining the Senate in the next election.
