POLITICS - Future of the GOP, Sen. Susan Collins

From a Republican living in reality.....

"Sen. Susan Collins hopes moderates will return to the GOP's 'shrinking middle'" PBS Newshour 10/31/2013


JUDY WOODRUFF (Newshour):  We have been speaking with members of the Republican Party about internal conflicts that led to the partial government shutdown, and where the GOP goes from here with record-low approval rating.

We conclude the series tonight with a third-term senator known for working across the aisle.  It was her blueprint that helped lead to the compromise that reopened the government.

Senator Susan Collins of Maine joins us from Capitol Hill.

Senator, thank you for being with us.

And I first want to ask you to put on your hat as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee to ask you about these new reports about NSA, National Security Agency, surveillance in Asia, including using the U.S. and the embassies of the United States and allies, and also this information about NSA tapping into communication links of Google and Yahoo!.

Is there something you can say to help us understand what's going on?  What do you make of it?
