    What benefit do you derive as a Montanan from Baucus' seniority that you would lose should Schweitzer run and beat him?

    That's a seriously weak argument to make for Baucus.

    And it may not be a "policy" difference but I'll bet that if Schweitzer ever gets elected to the Senate, he isn't going to leave through the revolving door and become a lobbyist.

    It gets back to something Markos talked about when I saw him on one of his early book tours and how it comes down to values; they may be similar in positions on policy but I think that Schweitzer shares my values more so than Baucus so were I a Montanan, I would be more inclined to support Schweitzer than Baucus eve though I disagree with him on some key issues.
