Politician Does Her Job

It looks like we will have another whiz-bang governor's race this Fall. Attractive Republican candidate Dino Rossi lost last election by under two hundred votes after a manual recount. Close Close Close. 2008 brings a rematch and the State Republicans are determined to right the perceived wrong. The problem is that Governor Gregoir has been a competent governor, if not terribly inspiring. Rossi would have a hard time duplicating her success with meeting the state's needs and co-opting the Democratic Party's excesses in spending beyond the citizens' willingness to pay. I refuse to punish her for doing her job. Rossi would face a massive 2 to 1 Democratic party majority in the legislature, and would be unable to set the agenda, or control the state government. There is a lot of stuff to do in the next two years, especially on the transportation front, for State Government to degenerate into a poo flinging session. Perhaps 2010 will be better for them.
