Nice. Any word on who the other delegates are from the 9th?
Article says: "Others chosen at the gathering were Zach Smith, a former supporter of ex-Sen. John Edwards who is now pledged to Clinton, and Natalie Stevens, an alternate pledged to Obama." But the 9th has 5 total, so that isn't everybody.
but WHO is the last CYLON?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!!?
Thanks Annie, I found it here.
and meanwhile 9th cd congressman democrat brian baird still supports the surge?
Dear Mr. Lee: please announce you will run against Rep. Baird and knock some sense into him.
It's pretty useless to have a 9th CD delegate supporting Obama if the 9th CD Congressman isn't going to vote for withdrawing the troops.
Great. Wait until Bill and Rush start using this as further "proof" Obama is a Muslim.
@6 Baird is from the 3rd CD. Adam Smith (Obama's state campaign chair) is the Rep from the 9th.
Bravo. Considering the 7th CD elected a national delegation that includes an Iraqi American, an Iranian American, a Jewish woman, and an 18-yr-old high school student, it's going to be quite an interesting convention.
Makes me even prouder to be a Democrat.
(@7--so we should worry what Bill and Rush say and elect our delegates accordingly? methinks not.)
Gee Annie, why did you feel like you had to wander all the way to Virginia to find out about Yee? You could have read it right here on Sunday night.Not that I'm patting myself on the back or anything. I got it from Emmett O'Connell and the Thurston County Democrats.
@10 - yeah, but the Clinton male delegate is gay.
There's a fairly extensive but not complete list of delegates here:
@12: We have teh gays! At least one, anyway.
Annie @ 14:
From the 7th? At least two gay delegates.
@15 Being conservative b/c some people didn't mention sexual orientation in their campaign materials. But yes.
@14 - so we have 2 total or is it 2 Obama and 1 Clinton? Dang, I hate close races.
OK, I'll come right out and guess 3 (L,G-O; G-C) total from the 7th, but I could be wrong.
Personally, I don't normally care (not being gay), so the only way I find out is if I'm at an event where their partner/spouse is ... or they announce it at some point.
One should never trust gaydar ... or you'd think most GOP electeds were gay.
