is at the Seattle P-I, and it's on the subject of Democratic free-traders from my home state of Washington. For those of you not familiar with Washington politics, or the major issues of importance there, I'd encourage you to check it out. Last year, a contact of mine in DC stunned me with the suggestion that someone should go after Maria Cantwell for having voted for free trade agreements. If you read the piece, you may get a feel for why I thought that was a pretty stupid suggestion, and one which if employed probably would have just strengthened Cantwell (not the person making the suggestion's point, but then he wasn't from Washington and I think may never even have been there, so it's hardly surprising he was so off base on this).
is on next year's Senate races, at The American. I think people who read this blog rigorously probably have a sense of how I think some of the main Senate races are going to shake out, but there is a mention of one in particular in there that I don't think I've ever blogged about. In any event, check it out!
