    It won't be the  GOP that beats her, but the dissatisfaction of the public over the dysfunctional Senate.   Independents have had it and will vote change.   What worries me most is that even though I live in the Bluest of the Blue of Seattle all I hear from folks is they don't care.  Democrats have failed to deliver on their promises and they plan to sit on their hands and pocket books.   They don't want to be taken for granted.   Senator Murray has played politics with old rules.  While she calls herself "Mom with tennis shoes" she learned the old network rules well-- carving out a name on issues like VA (big military and retiree presence) and is known as the Senator from Boeing (for obvious reasons).  But the rules have changed and generational change is taking place.  They want the change promise fulfilled on DADT, climate change, and healthcare.

      since she's referred to herself as the mom in tennis shoes. You're right -- she bought right into that old-style structure and the old ways of doing politics. That's why I have a hard time mustering up any excitement about her. But she's more of a Democrat than Maria Cantor, and she's a damn sight better than any of the Republican alternatives. This is not the year I'd be looking to encourage a primary challenge.

      Relax - the adults are in charge now.
