    Such as Heitkamp who voted against gun registration but supports Keystone and Obamacare.

    6 terms, 36 years, 13 as chair of senate finance

    trailing in the polls, baucus has also been fighting with reid and reid's puppet master, schumer, over comprehensive tax reform---the outgoing chair wants to eliminate loopholes and deductions in return for a broad based lowering of corporate and personal rates

    Baucus to retire rather than seek reelection in 2014: Washington Post

    ie, anathema to party leadership

    baucus makes SIX retirees---tim johnson from dakota, lautenberg from joisey, levin from michigan, rockefeller from WV, and iowa's tom harkin

    other D held seats potentially vulnerable include---alaska (begich), lousiana (landrieu), arkansas (pryor), north carolina (hagan) and on the outside virginia with mark warner

    fyi
    I think Baucus represented Montana well. I wish him the best.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Die hard partisans hate elected officials who vote the wishes of their constituents instead of the party line all the time.

    I do not know. But what I was getting at I respect any elected official who votes the way their constituents wishes regardless of which party they belong to. Our elected officials may run as a Republican or Democrat, but they are elected to represent the people of their district and state before party. I think Baucus did this. Montana is not New York or New Jersey.

    And Schweitzer will be a better candidate for "today's" Montana.
    Didn't Baucus vote for Obamacare?
    And he is doing poorly in polls.
    If states can pass laws to term limit state officials, the fed should be able to do the same thing.
    There are plenty more 6-termers who need to go now, especially McConnell.

    Yes he did vote for Obamacare and that may be one of the reasons he decided to retire. He has tried to distance himself from it, apparently it didn't work. But Tester also voted for Obamacare and it didn't hurt him last year. But the Republicans picked a not too popular guy to run against him.

    Besides McConnell, Reid also has to go. Both put their party way above the nation. Our elected officials are suppose to be Americans before being Republicans and Democrats. But this fact is lost on the vast majority of our elected officials.

    Baucus your kid brother or boyfriend or something? You can't seem to talk about the guy.

    Try post #16.
    Baucus is not a Democrat.
    He is the worst type of politician.
