Al and Chuck, Together Again

Latest predictable odd couple, if that’s not an oxymoron:

Chuck Schumer and Al D’Amato at a 1,000-a-plate fund-raiser at Mort Zuckerman’s Fifth Avenue home.

The object is to raise money for Montana Sen. Max Baucus’ 2008 re-election bid.

Which is actually what makes it curious. We know D’Amato will endorse a Democrat if the Republican’s a loser. But why does he have to help raise money for Democrats in Montana? Or maybe they’re just old Hill friends?
