1. The good thing is it appears the Democrats aren't going to cave
to the conservative Democrats on this issue. They've let the DINOs run the party too long

4. You can hear the insinserity in Baucus's voice.
That is what I hate about this new breed of "centrist"- it's clear to me that they don't really believe in anything, much less in their own words.

They dont want to be "progresive"- they just want to do what they think will keep them in the "majority." Fair enough, but I think they are even going about that goal wrong.

My guess is Baucus needed to squeeze a few more bucks from "the industry" before he bows out. I hope is now out of the picture.

Why these "Blue Dogs" hacks are allowed to steer the rest of us is way beyond me in any event.
