The partisan card

In response to this post, a commenter at Montana Headlines suggests that I have failed to take into account the extent to which the Schweitzer administration is playing the bipartisan card for cynical political purposes.

There might be some truth in that. But my sense is that Schweitzer doesn't really care much about partisan politics. What he does care about is winning, and he will play whatever cards are in his hand to do that.

David, I agree with you on this one. Schweitzer plays to win.

I've compared our Governor to Marc Anthony in ancient Rome, forcing his own party to go along with whatever he wants for fear of having their hands nailed onto the Senate door.
