Dems in Repug land see Clark as the best chance to take the country back. Get hyped up at a Dean rally, then work for Clark to make it happen.
Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee, plans to endorse the Democratic presidential candidate Friday, according to Democrats familiar with his plans.
Baucus' spokesman, Barrett Kaiser, confirmed reports of the senator's plans to endorse Clark.
Clark, the newest candidate in the race, has already received the backing of Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., ranking member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
Baucus, who promotes himself as a bipartisan Democrat, believes Clark can reach across party lines and be the best opponent of President Bush, say Democrats familiar with Baucus plans.
