    Is quite as strong as I'd like.

    A few options:

    Christine Gregoire, former governor of Washington.
    Fran Ulmer, former lieutenant governor of Alaska.
    Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, congresswoman from Hawaii.
    Jeff Bingaman, former senator from New Mexico.

    Keeper of the DKE glossary. Priceless: worth a lot; not for sale.

      And I really hope Schweitzer doesn't spoil his 2016 chances by taking an federal position, as long as polls show that Baucus can win again.

        Schweitzer's best chance in 2016, IMO, is to run as a Washington outsider.  Taking a position in the Obama cabinet isn't the best way to maintain that image.

        Baucus will win (probably big) if he chooses to run again.  With Rehberg declaring himself done with politics, I don't think the Montana GOP has anyone else who could even stand a chance of beating him.
