If Max Baucus is really serious about

going forward on a healthcare bill with or without GOP support, then all Humble Elias can say is, he is gonna want that "Interim" US Senator's vote from Massachusetts at some point in the process.
As the stakes get higher in this fight, the necessity of that 60th vote becomes clear and incontrovertible.
I mean, the GOP's congressional contingent is calling the President a liar to his face catcalling him and putting on a rare display of churlishness at Obama's speech before congress last night, are these the actions of people who are willing to negotiate in good faith?
Hell, things must have reached rock bottom behind closed doors when a quavery old middle of the road golem like Max Baucus has realized that GOP can't be relied upon.
