In Good Hands

Joel Connelly at the PI has a nice article about how lucky we are to have the women leaders we have in Olympia.  In the piece, "In the Northwest: Women leaders in Olympia took a risk - and won", he says that Governor Gregoire, along with Democratic Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown and Democratic Senators Mary Margaret Haugen of Camano Island and Harriet Spanel of Bellingham, pushed through an agenda reminiscent of the excellent leadership this state has had in the past.  He says, "They have revived a do-what's needed, tough-it-out spirit" and then:

More has been accomplished in little more than 100 days of Gov. Chris Gregoire's administration - which courts may still bring to an abrupt end - than in the first six years of Gary Locke's tenure.

For a good summary of what did and what didn't happen in this session, KOMO has a good post from a few days ago.

Of course, a potted plant could probably have accomplished more than Gary Locke. And the plant would definitely have been more charismatic. Which is no slight against Governor Gregoire, but really, Gary set the bar for gubernatorial accomplishment pretty low.
