The only thing I see when I look at all this is that finally Rossi will stop playing at politics and concentrate on being the best motorcycle racer in the world. His string of championship victories will ring out long after history has forgotten who was Governor of Washington. It's funny that a man can't be satisfied with that.

Louie, Louie?

They played our official state song at a Gregoire rally?

Sen. Joe McDermott, not Rep. Joe McDermott

@2 - damned straight. She's the Governor, and she knows what we want - and if it's Louie, Louie for our State Anthem, then that's what's playing!

I hear Dino Marx Rossi was playing "Money" by Pink Floyd.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when an incumbent Gov gets less than 50 percent, even in a top two primary, isn't that a sign of weakness and not strength? Or at least the election being a toss-up? Or is the expectation that young Obama voters will propel her in November, so a near-tie now signifies an easy victory in November?

Seriously, 'Louie, Louie' is her theme song, she requests it to be played every time she speaks at events.

I attended an event a few years ago, she was late & the folks putting on the event only had the first minute of the song- they played it over & over until she finally made her appearance...
