      Hell, I'm a Coug myself.

      But overall, the population of Eastern WA is largely Republican, a factor that has to be taken into account in WA state politics all the time.  Spokane is over half a million; Pullman is maybe 30K people, including students, faculty and local residents.

      No one's trying to dis Pullmanites - just trying to educate folks who might be interested in the layout of how WA political demographics work out by region.

      The inadequate is the enemy of the necessary.

        which is why we had the 50 state strategy.  Let me throw in a few more cities in Whitman County that are good for Dems.  Albion, Palouse, Colton, Uniontown are all good although that is because of their bedroom community nature, but the city of Malden is also good and it is more of a bedroom community of Spokane.  Our State Speaker of the House, Rep. Lisa Brown, represents one of the strongest Democratic districts in the state and it is in the heart of Spokane.
