I am at Benaroya Hall for the state Democrats big function with Hillary Clinton. There is no working wifi in the building. I am at an undisclosed location. There is a big crowd here, but few protests outside despite the best efforts of the state Republican Party. Ron Paul, certainly officially a Republican, has a big presence in the blocks surrounding the concert hall, though.
So, I hear Dino Rossi is going to run for governor. Who's surprised? Well, I am. A little at least. I have to admit to thinking the chances were 50-50. Be sure his name will come up here tonight.
As for UFOs? This is from Newhosue News Service:
Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich has claimed he saw a UFO, according to Shirley MacLaine in her new book, "Sage-Ing While Age-Ing."
Kucinich "had a close sighting over my home in Graham, Washington, when I lived there," wrote the actress, a close Kucinich friend. "Dennis found his encounter extremely moving. The smell of roses drew him out to my balcony where, when he looked up, he saw a gigantic triangular craft, silent, and observing him.
"It hovered, soundless, for 10 minutes or so, and sped away with a speed he couldn't comprehend. He said he felt a connection in his heart and heard directions in his mind."
MORE: Clinton has a two-day schedule of fundraisers while in the area. She had one earlier today, will have an after-party fundraiser late tonight at the home of Stan and Alta Barer and tomorrow has an event with high-tech execs and a visit to Microsoft.
On my Treo - Democratic State Party Chairman Dwight Pelz warmed up the crowd with this bit of red meat.
''These Republicans in Washington, D.C., are truly evil and need to be replaced.''
