Thursday, June 05, 2008So I had just commented that Patty Murray would make a plausible national candidate. Now a day later I read that she's on Obama's short list. Neat. I don't have a ton of background info on her, but I do know she ran a really awesome campaign to get to the Senate in 1992. Apparently at some point she was derided as a "mom in tennis shoes", which she decided to own and now is sort of her nickname. Murray's also get a really good reputation on the hill. Here's a bio.
