  •  Thanks for the correction, JamesB3, (none)
    and I agree with you about the Montana Messiah thing (and I live here).  BUT I disagree with you that progressive Democratic Montana voters would normally take a different position from Schweitzer on gun control.  I mean, I support stricter gun control, but I'm from Massachusetts.  Long-term Montanans have a different take on guns, quite reasonably-- here, they're mainly used for hunting.  We don't really have big cities and people running about with assault weapons, much.

    I do think the definition of "progressive" has to take local/regional idiosyncrasies into account.  There is not one single progressive agenda which must be implemented across-the-board, but rather a progressive approach to policy-making which attempts to make ethical choices based on specific circumstances and realities.  I believe Gov. Schweitzer takes that approach, though I disagree, as you do, with some of his positions.

      Schweitzer saved us from the incompetent clutches of Governor Judy Martz and her designated successor Bob Brown.  And he has begun to reverse the damge done to the state from the anti-christ, Governor Marc "ENRON lobbyist" Racicot.

      Governor Brian Schweitzer on seeking the presidency; "I'm not half that smart and I'm none too pretty."
