    ... after providing Cory Gardner with several juicy sound bites about what a terrible senator he would be, all because his ego wouldn't let him recognize what everyone else knew from the get-go.

    Man ... Inslee dropping out appears nowhere in Politico's top stories. It's been relegated to the "Quick Pops" sidebar. That's gotta sting ...

    To be fair, it wouldn't be too hard to convince segments of the population that's the exchange rate!

    It is interesting the knock on effects. Seattle’s municipal elections are taking place. We just had our primary which cut down 55 candidates to 14 for the 7 district seats currently up. It has already been the meanest and most expensive municipal election in history, even though the general just kicked off (lots of outside money pouring in, Seattle leading the charge on progressive politics AND having one of the best economies in the nation is REALLY pissing conservatives off).

    Anyway nasty elections are about to get nastier as Jay has left in time to run for a 3rd term, meaning Alex Ferguson (current AG) isn’t going to run for governor, meaning Deborah Juarez (currently in one of the two At Large Seattle council seats) isn’t going to run for AG. That at large seat was seen as backup plan for any close losers of these current elections. It looks like Teresa Mosqueda (other At Large) might challenge Jenny Durkan (mayor) which would be fucking awesome, fuck Durkan and I’ve been Team Mosqueda from the beginning (early endorser and cohosted a fundraiser for her). But nothing in stone yet. If those two At Large seats remain occupied then close district races just became winner take all and there are no points for ‘running a good race’.

    Good. The standards were still probably too low, but it's nice that we at least got some of the jokers out of the deck.

    I still blame her for kowtowing to Hillary in '16, but so far she's got my vote. And I still say Bernie would make a good Cabinet minister.

    Warren/Harris is my ticket as of this moment. Subject to change without notice.

    And I do get a kick out of the number of Republicans challenging Der Drumpfenfuhrer. :yes:

    In my defense I couldn't have known any better as your wife had no complaints.

    People who are told "you might notice a little prick" and then don't generally don't complain.

    Big fan of Sanders, big fan of Warren, if we get either on the ticket, I'm going to feel pretty good about that.

    Gillibrand was an early (like the morning after the 2016 election) favorite of mine, but she never seemed to find a niche that wasn't being dominated by someone else.
