King brings unorthodox flair to a bipartisan mission in the Senate

If it hadn't been for his staff, Maine Sen. Angus King (I) might have recently become the first lawmaker to showcase a Veg-O-Matic on the Senate floor. Alas, he had to settle for using the food processor as a verbal metaphor and not a visual one. "I wanted to take it on the floor and show what it did, but they wouldn't let me," King joked in an interview with E&E Daily last week. King was referring to his first Senate floor speech, in which he urged his colleagues to conceive of a new age of compromise between political parties. His 23-minute monologue was peppered with quotes from President Lincoln and anecdotes from the 2000 election, as well a reference to the unassuming Veg-O-Matic.
