WA Dems: Murray speaks

Sen. Patty Murray tells delegates there’s 143 days until the election “and we can’t afford to waste a single one.”

She gets cheers when she says they can change the country and take it back, and the expected boos when she mentions George Bush or GOP presidental nominee John McCain — the biggest when she mimick’s McCain’s recent statement that leaving troops in Iraq “doesn’t matter.” (She leaves out the part where McCain says “as long as they aren’t being killed” but that’s probably just a minor oversight.)

She tells them they’ve come through a “history and her-story changing election” in the caucuses and primaries.

And she borrows Barack Obama’s “Yes We Can” for electing everyone from the governor to the Democratic candidates for Congress in traditionally Republican districts.
