When Schweitzer didn't think you could change the world from Washington

The Hill's Cameron Joseph is reporting that Brian Schweitzer is considering running for Montana's open Senate seat in 2016 now that incumbent Max Baucus is retiring.

That reminds me of this Schweitzer quote from a January 2013 interview.

After being asked about a cabinet gig, Schweitzer demurred:

"I want to change the world, and I'm afraid that putting your feet in concrete in Washington, D.C., is probably not the place to change the world."
