    is Patty Murray going to be vulnerable in 2010?  She's far and away the most popular politician in deeply blue Washington.  It's just as likely (read: not at all likely) that Barbara Boxer will lose in California.

      the most recent Survey USA poll that came out last week showed Cantwell with a higher approval rating than Murray. (Granted, 1% higher, but still...)

      To answer your question, though, I don't know who'd be the Republican to do it. Their bench is paper-thin, Dino Rossi will be a non-entity after losing the governor's race in 2008, Rob McKenna is probably holding his fire to run for governor in 2012, and that's about it. Probably it'll be some McGavick-style rich guy no one has heard of yet who can finance his own funeral.
