What does "carry so much baggage" mean?

Posted by YSG on November 13, 2003

May I ask a question on phrase?

Recently I read a news which had this phrase. It seems to me that the phrase doesn't relate to physical baggages and luggage...

Does it mean burden? I've checked up some online dictionaries (Yahoo!, Webster, Oxford, Cambridge) but cannot get an answer...

Is there an origin as well?
