Max Baucus testifying on Capitol Hill in Washington before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on his nomination to become US ambassador to China. The Senate was preparing Thursday to confirm veteran Baucus as ambassador to China, handing the job to a lawmaker who is familiar with U.S. trade policy but has little expertise about military and other issues that have caused tensions in recent years with Beijing.
