Collins Obstructs

Earlier today, Sen. Collins voted to bottle up the nomination of President Obama's pick for deputy secretary of the Interior Department.

Collins, you'll remember, showed extreme deference to President Bush when it came to presidential appointments. She even helped form a group tasked with preventing the filibustering of his judicial nominees.

And yet today, the moderate liberal bipartisan centrist joined 37 other Republicans in blocking an up or down vote on the nomination of David Hayes, who served at Interior during the Clinton Administration.

(Sen. Snowe, as you may have guessed, voted against blocking Hayes.)

Thanks again, LCV.
