    Max Baucus will prove to be the seventh Republican.  And it won't take long for it to happen, probably within a week he'll be talking cutting entitlements and pooh-poohing revenue increases.

    Picking Max Baucus was a signal from Obama (Reid would never have picked him unless forced to) that he wishes to remain Appeaser-In-Chief.  Or Neville-Chamberlain-In-Chief.  Of James-Buchanan-In-Chief.

      Call Baucus and raise hell about his role on this Committee of GOP extremists.

      The woman who answered the phone in his DC office listened intensely as I said Baucus must either make a commitment to the Dems and our politicies and values or remove himself from the Committee.

      CALL -- 1-866-338-1015

      BTW -- Ask Pelosi to name John Yarmuth of KY to the Committee.

      This is classic Reid.  He's not a progressive and never has been.  He balanced his caucus with three members who represent the liberal, sort-of-liberal and moderate wings of his caucus.  No defending Reid.
