"I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors." - Thomas Jefferson (appears in the Jefferson Memorial)

Re-elect, and shift

There was a contest yesterday among Washington state Democrats for the position of state chair. More or less a contest, anyway.

The incumbent (since 2006), Dwight Pelz, was re-elected 145-14 over Natalie McClendon, who chairs the Whatcom County Democrats.

Recall that only a short time ago, Washington Republicans ousted their chair, Luke Esser, who served during a similar time span, by a vote of about two to one (in favor of talk show host Kirby Wilbur), though there was little by way of suggesting that Esser had done a bad job.

Seems to reflect a difference in attitude.
