Role models

Washington Attorney General Rob McKenna, who is widely presumed to be a likely candidate for governor next year, made it quite definite – in a Seattle Times interview just before a state Republican event – that he doesn’t see embattled Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker as a role model (our phrase, not his).

McKenna did on the other hand seem to give enough compliments to the evening’s speaker to suggest he sees that person as what amounts to a gubernatorial role model. That would be Idaho Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter. Speaking to fellow Republicans, he called Idaho a “business nirvana,” among other compliments.

Might be time for Washingtonians to take a closer look at what’s been happening this year in the state government to their east. Democrats particularly.
