Gregoire says state Dems embraced message of change

Posted by David Postman

Gov. Chris Gregoire visited a few caucus sites today but was surprised to hear now how well Obama is doing. She saw lots of Clinton signs in Mukilteo and Ballard and supporters of both candidates, “So I walked out not really having a good sense of what was happening.”

But told that Obama, who she endorsed just yesterday, was winning by a wide margin, she said:

Who would have thought this? I think Washington is tired of the message of fear. That’s not the American way and we heard that message and we’ve seen that message now for how many years? Now let’s get back to how we really feel as Americans, and we’re hopeful. That’s what we’re all about.

“I do think Washingtonians are very concerned about where we are domestically and equally concerned about where we are in terms of our image abroad, to say nothing about the war. And we want someone who has the capacity to really unite folks.”
