Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

Using Bush visit for debate fodder

Michael Blauw came to President Bush's speech hoping to gain an edge in a national competition. Blauw, a 16-year-old sophomore, is one of 18 people on East Grand Rapids High School 's We The People Team, which debates constitutional issues. The team won the state competition in January and next week represents Michigan in Washington , D.C.

"We're really hoping for something we can use in the competition," Blauw said before the speech. "I don't think too many teams are getting an audience with the president of the United States the week before."

Gore in 2008?

East Lansing resident Bob Alexander saw opportunity among the protesters who lined up along Lakeside Drive SE. He's the state co-director of "Volunteers to Draft Al Gore 2008." He reported getting 238 signatures for his petition.
