Inslee bested McKenna by roughly 32,000 votes in a gubernatorial primary whose main purpose was to weed out the seven also-rans. But watching the top two discuss the vote afterwards, you saw Democrat Inslee still trying to explain how he would provide a bigger state education budget by somehow pumping up the economy rather than raising taxes, while McKenna made fun of him for trying to do it - much to the delight of his Republican hangers-on.
It was a preview of what to expect between now and November - the warm, likeable-but-is-he-capable Inslee and the didactic, I-have-all-the-answers McKenna.
As politics tends to, the post inspired some discussion. Some, like commenter Joey, weren't buying what Inslee is selling.
As Joey writes:
So what will you say when Inslee loses to the junior high student, as he will in November after the debates. I figure him for one of those snobby school jocks we all detested. I'll bet someone wrote in his yearbook, "Good luck to a shallow guy. You'd make a great Democrat."
