Best Candidate for King County Executive Who Should Be Running for Mayor

Dow Constantine

Seattle loves you, Dow Constantine. Its rock legends come out in force for your fundraisers at the Croc, as you're a genuine music aficionado—the sort of dude who shows up at a Flipper show at the Funhouse without any fanfare. You're unwed, just like many of us, and like your beer, just like most of us. You're Jon Stewart sharp, and don't cower at the utterance of an off-color joke. You're the Water Taxi's chief advocate, and the Water Taxi is awesome. So why is it that you want to represent a bunch of Black Diamond rubes instead of deal with issues that only we urbanites care about? They don't like you so much down there; we pant at your presence. The countywide race you've got on your hands is going to be a nail-biter, whereas had you chosen to challenge your neighbor Greg in a mediocre mayoral field, you'd win in a walk. We sincerely wish you luck, but if that TV anchor somehow tops you come November, don't say we didn't tell you so.—Mike Seely
