  •  I'm really amazed at some of the people I know (none)
    Who supported Rossi.  It's really interesting.  I'm guessing the Gregoire just wasn't a very exciting candidate.  Rossi was all dressed up.  He looked respectable.  
    •  Rossi and Gregoire (none)
      Gregoire leaves a bad taste in a lot of peoples mouths.  For one thing, she is apparently opposed the WA-State equivalent of the Freedom of Information act. Major downer points. Among other things.  She has a negative reputation.  I think that was greatly aided by an extremely effective media campaign by Rossi. I dunno what was going on, but I saw literally ten times as much advertisement for Rossi/against Gregoire than vice versa. (I live in King County.) That counts everything from yard signs to highway banners to animated billboards to television ads. Some of them were pretty slick.

      The debate was nothing special, either.

      Still, I remember last time our family stepped aside for a seemingly harmless bumbler - 2000 national election.  A bit of a learning experience- We'd probably hate Rossi if he gets elected, he's too much of a smooth operator.

      There is a heaven, but ill never get there... i keep respawning...
