End of Days?

On Sunday, for literally the first time in years, Sen. Susan Collins will take questions from adult Mainers in an open forum. TMB has the details.

So if you're near Portland, get out there. And arrive early.

If we had the chance, we'd probably ask about Collins' support for the Cheney energy bill. Or her opposition to even former Sen. Rick Santorum's (R-PA) version of the minimum wage increase.

Or how she squares Samuel Alito's dissent in Planned Parenthood v. Casey with her sense that he's a principled jurist.

But whatever question we asked, we'd be sure to make it narrowly tailored, and about the junior senator's record.

And we'd be sure to preface it with a request that she restrict her answer to discussing what she had done and why rather than what she might support going forward.
