Since the rumors and subsequent announcement that Montana’s senior Senator, Max Sieben Baucus, would be nominated for the U.S. Ambassador to China, the laudatory remarks toward the “powerful” senator flowed like highway dollars into Montana.
The “laudatory remarks” included those from:
-Current Lt. Governor and Senate candidate John Walsh, a Democrat, who said, “Baucus served Montana with ‘distinction and class.’”
-Current U.S. Representative and Senate candidate Steve Daines, a Republican, said Baucus was a “dedicated public servant.”
-Montana’s other U.S. Senator, Jon Tester, used the same line, “dedicated public servant,” and he added that Baucus will be “a tremendous representative for the American people in China.”
-Montana Governor Steve Daines basically said the same things.
-President Obama said, “Max Baucus is going to be an outstanding ambassador to China.”
