Rep. Inslee (Who We Love) Endorses HRC (Who We ?)

posted by on June 22 at 9:35 AM

Serious enviro Inslee was also named co-chair of Clinton’s Energy and Environmental Task Force.

People think McDermott is our flaming liberal, but I urge you to check in on Rep. Inslee’s flaming record, especially on the environment where he’s been a leader. He’s also been firmly against the war from the beginning. Don’t know if his endorsement will quell Hillary’s Cantwell-style problem (the war!) here in Seattle, but Inslee’s endorsement can’t hurt.

Postman’s got some context.

And we’ve got an old Slog interview leading up to Blue Wave 2006. Listen to Inslee bash then-Majority leader Rep. John Boehner and feel his scorn for President Bush:

I like Jay too, he is effective, hard worker. Too bad he is pro death penalty.

Feit as a centrist and lefty hata has always been a Baghdad Jim hater, and will throw a wrench at him any chance he gets, but say what you will , Jim like Paul Wellstone (senate) and Ron Dellums before him was a voice of reason in a crazy congress.

The so called pragmatists are always hating when lefties get elected to office as they feel they stop the centrist agenda.

HRC= Hillary Rodham Clinton? Or...Human Rights Campaign?

Unless you're hoping people will link these two things somewhere in their minds, maybe you just want to call her "Hillary". I think most people can figure out who's being talked about.

Last time I checked, voters were adults, and presumably can have different opinions as to who should be Pres.

I have friends who like Kucinich or Nader or HRC, but these are all personal choices.

You are not your congressman. You elect him - he may not agree with you.

Inslee says: "She has the toughness, experience, and resolve needed to end the Iraq war." Bullshit bullshit bullshit!

Inslee is taking a bet she'll win, and has prostituted his position on the war in order to continue his laudable environmental leadership.
