Snowe Named One of the Best Senators

Olympia Snowe has been named one of the top ten U.S. Senators by Time. The magazine cites her nonpartisan approach to issues, and her willingness to stand up against a President of her own party.
In 2003, after one of her numerous disagreements with the Bush administration, she almost single-handedly forced Bush to lower a tax-cut proposal from $700 billion to $350 billion. Republicans in Washington were furious. But a few days later in Portland, a driver saw Snowe on the street from his car window and shouted to the surprised Senator: "You go, Olympia. You stand strong." [Link]
