If you were listening to any of the local news or talk stations yesterday, you got to hear plenty of clips of Senator Mikulski (among others) railing against the bailout. Hers was among the more vehement voices we got to hear and, in my opinion, one of the few who really got to the heart of the impact that this could have on the psyche of the individual voters.

I've always admired her willingness to take that sort of stand.

Hey Claude,

Just hearing the Senator's voice and accent makes me smile from ear-to-ear. When she is making a strong and technical point, my ears move toward her voice like a cat.

She is truly one of our treasures. I've never met her; I hope to.

I agree she is a treasure. My personal favorite is her willingness to co-sponsor the Cluster Munitions Civilian Protection Act, which would prevent the military from using cluster bombs in civilian areas.
Go Barbara!

Thanks so much for commenting, Rita. Here are a couple of her quotes that I love so very much:

"When one gets old and they are sick, there are not many things they can count on but they should be able to count on Social Security. Our seniors' retirement should never rely on the bull of political promises or the bear of the market" and...

"I thought in this country, the best social program was a job. Yet minimum wage jobs aren't paying enough to keep families out of poverty" and...

"College is part of the American dream. It shouldn't be part of a financial nightmare for families" and...

I just want to hug our Senator. She makes me so proud.
