Inhabitancy: Although England repealed Parliament’s residency law in 1774, no delegates spoke against a residency requirement for members of Congress. The qualification first came under consideration on August 6 when the Committee of Detail reported its draft of the Constitution. Article 5, section 3 stated, “Every member of the Senate shall be . . . at the time of his election, a resident of the state from which he shall be chosen.”
On August 8, Roger Sherman moved to strike the word “resident” from the House version of the clause, and insert in its place “inhabitant,” a term he considered to be “less liable to misconstruction.” Madison seconded the motion, noting that “resident” might exclude people occasionally absent on public or private business. Delegates agreed to the term, “inhabitant,” and voted against adding a time period to the requirement. The following day, they amended the Senate qualification to include the word, “inhabitant,” prior to passing the clause by unanimous consent.

Meanwhile, thanks for being the righteous person you are. If I can be of any assistance, please let me know.

May your “Dirigo” continue to be a polar star for a well defended, but not aggressive, United States of America, and a prosperous, but renewable Great North Woods.

Thank you for your kindness to me and ‘Big Wig’

    This is the real price the GOP is paying for its polarized, anything to win, scorched earth tactics. Even if moderate Republicans don’t care much for Obama, they don’t want to be associated with Boehner, McConnell, Cantor, and the presidential circus clowns, I mean potential nominees, of the GOP. If they just stay home in November it will more than offset the advantage the GOP gains from gerrymandering, voter ID vote suppression, negative ads, and SuperPACs enabled by the 5 GOP stooges on the SCOTUS. The best GOP hope is for the SCOTUS to steal another election.

    In Indiana Lugar is under attack by a tea party candidate in the primary, though I imagine he will weather the storm. The “team” model of politics has gotten to the point where they should probably wear different colored uniforms.

    Moderate? How many times did Snowe sign up for a Republican filibuster? How much damage did she do to the stimulus package by negotiating out the primary $$ that would have been real stimulus for jobs (as opposed to food stamps and unemployment insurance, which is what much of it really was).  
     
    For ‘a moderarte’ she did plenty of damage.

    Like Mitt Romney, Senator Olympia Snowe has a brain and a healthy dose of sanity. But, unlike Mitt Romney, she isn’t willing to fake the stupidity and the lunacy that the GOP base so dearly craves.

    Senator Snowe has serves her State greatly, but she is amongst the Senators retiring that has screwed the American people with her votes. She would have never been re-elected. Her votes have hurt families. 
    And all polls in Maine show that they are sick of the GOP promises.

    This has to be more of a loss for the Democrats than the Republicans. I had always hoped she might change parties. But evidently she has had enough, and wants to pick up her marbles and go home.

    Good riddence. Snowe usually caved to her partisan interest. It is clear that her voters do not favor the GOP agenda, She got elected by people who thought she would represent them, but at the last minute she would get badgered into supporting the GOP. If it was not a sexist comment, I would say she was a tease. You would think you had a chance to get her vote from what she said, but at the last minure, Trent Lott would get it. Even so, she was, after all, a GOP, I am even more critical of Collins, who got elected promising she wouild be a virtual Democrat, but has been a loyal partisan GOP.

    Actions speak louder than words. You cannot be considered a moderate when you consistently vote with right-wing fringes of your party on virtually everything. With few exceptions, she did.

    I respected Olympia Snowe’s willingness to work toward practical solutions. I was disappointed she did not see fit to get on board with Health Care Reform. Maybe she would have but for pressure from the right wing of her own party, I don’t really have any way of knowing. She could well be replaced by a Democrat, which is a consolation for her departure from the scene.

    Had we not repeated our mistake of allowing large media ownership to powerful few we’d have long ago adopted campaign funding reform and legislators would be beholden to voters rather than campaign contributors. 1% of our media, a familiar percentage today, is offering citizen awareness today of a small but growing number of members of Congress and The Senate who are attempting to remove the influence of money from our nations politics, while 99% avoid giving their efforts media coverage. Our media owners, who also own large entities in financial, aviation, healthcare, rail, lighting, security, lighting, energy, petroleum, etcetera, appear to work to maintain the status quo.
