There are a number of reasons why this inauguration photo from Max Baucus’ website stood out for me — now that he’s come away from his protracted quest for a bipartisan health care agreement with nothing (but concessions).
Big State. Minuscule population. Special interests with a leg up.
The farce of leading a charge.
Stomping on the cowboy myth. This guy’s not just a suit, but industry’s suit.
