Dear Yikes: I saw your comment in reaction to my recent reporting from around Washington. You were unhappy that I didn't find more Republicans, or at least more Republicans who think like you. And you said:
You sure managed to get quite a few Democratic Party activists in there....and zero Republican activists. A newspaper reporter often leaves a trail like a slug....long & slimey.
I wish I had run into more upbeat Republicans on my trip. And I'm not done yet. In fact, I think it will be important to see what Republicans are thinking between this weekend's caucus and the Feb. 19 primary, when only Republican votes matter.
So, why don't you help out. Just like others who agreed to talk to me in far corners of the state, I hope you'll give me a little time, as well as your real name of course, and sit down with me wherever you may be to talk about the 2008 presidential elections. And if you have some friends or neighbors who'd be willing to join in, that'd be even better.
What do you say? And I promise to clean up any slimy trail I may leave behind.
