James Baker: Communist Country

"On his first trip to China, James Baker, a former treasury secretary and former secretary of state (and a Texan), was asked whether he had been to a communist country before. No, he said, only Massachusetts."

[Though "Taxachusetts" produced Michael Dukakis, John Kerry, and Ted Kennedy, the state twice voted for Ronald Reagan and had a history of electing Republican governors.]
