What's Clearer Now Is This: What is right is the right that gets done.

Of all the candidates whose issues have been brought up in the Democratic Party Primary, Jay Inslee stands out as the only one who has already enacted in his state

-- Marijuana laws
-- free college tuition laws,
-- clean energy laws,
-- immigration laws,
-- income inequality and minimum wage laws,
-- family leave laws,
-- union laws,
-- sweeping voter registration laws.

He even sued Trump over the Muslim ban and won.

Inslee, like America's Millennials, is a doer, not a talker.

Sure, the primaries are for people to stand up for candidates with the best ideas and records. And being right is what Democrats do best. So far, we Democrats have learned that being right and DOING right are the proof of presidential executive know-how. Right now, Biden, very arguably, fills that slot. But Jay Inslee is way more accomplished than Biden.

Like the rest of the Democratic candidates, Inslee's been on Rachel Maddow, ABC,NBC, CBS, Bill Maher and all kinds of media interviews. Sure, he doesn't travel all over like Elizabeth Warren, because he's governing a state, while she and the other candidates are not.

Jay Inslee has implemented scaleable models for transforming energy;
he's implemented construction models for the country, and
he vows to re-establish America's international work with other countries doing the same things through the Paris Climate Accord.
Jay Inslee's Climate Change Mobilization Project if far reaching beyond our borders, and will be taken seriously by America's allies.

Right now, Jay Inslee the only Democratic leader who knows how to do what it takes to stay below the 2 Centigree threshhold from which there will be no return, and how to get the funding to do it.


What makes Inslee best qualified? He is, right now, a state governor, which is a whole level of executive -- "execution" of decisions, law writing, shepherding bills through both parties of the statehouse, implementing and monitoring laws -- experience that none of the other Democratic candidates have.

He's spent several terms in the U.S. House of Representatives, therefore has a federal knowledge of its processes in serving both national interests and his state's interests -- experience they don't have. He's been president of the National Governors Association, which puts him in good relations with a lot of red state governors -- experience the other candidates haven't got.

There is no oppo on Jay Inslee; he's clean.

His donor list is clean -- unions, SIX First Nations Tribes, university and tech money.

Inslee's also got tough chops for a national debate.

Finally, and not for nothing, his youth puts him into the same age advantage category as the younger candidates.

Jay Inslee, more than any other presidential candidate in the Democratic Party,
has shown the widest range of can-do legislative leadership on the issues youth care about.

Count your "right" or "electable" candidate by consensus building. That's fine politics. But to me,

what is right is the right that gets done.

Governor Jay Inslee is chief executive of the state rated #1 in the country by U.S. News and World Report, and is the most qualified to be the chief executive of the United States.

1. I'm very impressed with Inslee and don't think the media gives him near enough attention.

 

He's easy to listen to, very presentable. I think if voters had to compare him to screaming brain farts, they'd choose Inslee.

2. He looks young, too. I hope his message at the debates is compelling.
