Carlson: Shawn Keough For Guv?

Odds are heavily against it happening soon. Stars would plausibly all have to align perfectly to create a first ever in Idaho politics–the election of a woman as governor. Looking around the northwest, though, one quickly realizes odds are growing that a qualified female will someday lead even Idaho. Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Montana and Utah are neighboring northwest states that have had female chief executives. In Idaho, each party possesses at least one talented, intelligent, articulate, qualified female who, while they might have to be “drafted,” could plausibly run for and win the nomination of their party to be governor, as soon as 2014. On the Republican side the nominee could be veteran Sandpoint State Senator Shawn Keough. On the Democratic side the nominee could be freshman State Senator Michelle Stennett, from Ketchum/Chris Carlson, The Carlson Chronicles. More here.
