Olympia Snowe announces she won’t support Senate’s healthcare bill. Original photos by ele’s Caroline Treadway!

Nov. 19, 2009-Maine Senator Olympia Snowe is mobbed by reporters after announcing she would not support the Senate's version of the health care bill. Last Saturday, the Senate voted to bring the bill to the floor and to bar filibusters.

All I could see was a knot of reporters huddled outside the door to the Senate floor. I peeked through the tangle of arms and voice recorders, and couldn’t believe it—the coveted Snowe! I grabbed my camera and started snapping away. Here’s what I got.
