Senate career[edit]

Muskie's career in the U.S. Senate deserves a section. He is particularly remembered as architect of the Clean Air Act of 1970 (PL 91-604), which created the Environmental Protection Agency and led to both near-term and prolonged reductions in automobile and power-plant pollution. See Muskie's recollection of the 1970 and subsequent events in 1990, when major revisions strengthening that landmakr law were under consideration, at www.cleanairtrust.org/nepa2cercla.html. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.44.187.100 (talk) 13:34, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

History Reveals[edit]

"Because of Republican Vice Presidential nominee Spiro Agnew's apparent weakness as a candidate relative to Muskie, Humphrey was heard to remark that voters' uncertainties about whom to choose between the top two Presidential candidates should be resolved by their attitudes toward the Vice-Presidential candidates. History reveals that voters took his advice"

I'm pretty sure this statement is not NPOV. I don't have the Nixon book in front of me. But I would bet that was a sarcastic remark by Nixon about is opponent rather than a factual statement. 67.85.233.175 (talk) 17:17, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
