Eye On Olympia

The Stranger to governor: Back Obama, avoid alienating E WA conservatives…

An Olympia parlor game right now is trying to figure out whether high-profile Democrats will lean toward Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton.

In this post from The Stranger’s blog, political writer Josh Feit makes the case for superdelegate (and governor) Chris Gregoire to pick Obama.

With all our mainstream politicians (Cantwell, Murray, Sims, Inslee) endorsing Clinton, Gregoire would look (by contrast) like she’s dialed in to the street-level zeitgeist in Seattle.

Meanwhile, serving her obsession to appease Eastern Washington, she’d disassociate herself from Clinton, who is a Satanic icon among the red meat Republicans. They’d just shrug at an Obama endorsement. Everything to gain. Nothing to lose.
