The decision of U.S. Senator Max Baucus (D-Montana) not to run in 2014 means that the state's Native vote could be very important next year

I have detested this sorry excuse for a "democrat" since he took the seat - however- I'm surprised that the indigenous peoples of Montana have a liking to him - so I guess there must have been an ounce of goodness in his dark heart - I do hope that someone more humane and intelligent will take his place - but Montana doesn't seem to have a lot to offer - what a desolate state! Sorry I feel so disgusted by what that state delivers!

Lee, your comment reminds of a Lynard Skynard song, "I hope lee e will remember, a Montana man don't need him around anyhow.".

Glad to see him go. I hope the indigenous Montanans look away from party politics and select a solid indpendent thinker -perhpas one of their own who respects the native American concept of no action without considering the effect on the next seven generations.

Have to hope someone out there is looking to
inject some sanity into the processes of the
House and Senate - there's surely none now.

Max Baucus was one of the worst and sorriest excuses for a Democrat ever. Perhaps he had native blood and treated those people better than the people in general who he treated like a Republican. But in general Republicans hate native Americans every bit as much as they hate blacks and the poor. They may pay lip service to them, but as we saw with Jack Abramoff and his 'pubs, no matter what they promise them, they will cheat them out of their sandals.

Noted. I am glad Max Baucus will not be returning to office. As I recall, when he had his committee meeting on health care during the time when Congress was discussing what to do before the Affordable Health Care Act eventually got passed, he would not allow his committee to discuss: Comprehensive, Universal, Single-Payer Health Care, which if we got it would have helped the people of the United States A LOT.

Thank you for your post, Cal.

I don't know much about this man but I did note that there is 50 to 80 percent unemployment existing. If he was "helping" so much how come that kind of unemployment exists?
Politicians have a way of getting out the vote and then forgetting the people that put them in that office. I hope the Native people think wisely when either party comes knocking on their doors.
