Here is a clip on Tacoma City Councilmember Julie Anderson describes why she is supporting Obama. Feed Tacoma blogger "NEAL" takes a short break from blogging to help run the caucus.
Here's some extras:
Gregoire endorsing Obama at Key Arena
Huckabee ahead in Washington.
To give a more balanced post, here is a Huckabee video as he is virtually tied in Washington. Feed Tacoma readers may need to make the difficult decision between Obama and Huckabee in November. Its important to understand the choices. Here, Huckabee answers a question as to whether he believes in evolution during the Republican debate. A lively exchange.

|Where is the urban planning tie-in???
Hopefully, Obama, if elected, will place reinvesting in cities at a higher priority than the prior adminstration rather than other issues.
He's spent some time in Chicago which has some of the same challenges and disinvestment problems as Tacoma.

|Having taken Washington, Louisiana, and Nebraska yesterday, Obama looks to have won Maine as well:
Washington, D.C. (AHN) - A day after victories in Louisiana, Nebraska and Washington State, Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) is ahead in the Maine Democratic caucus.
With 44 percent of precincts reporting, Obama leads with 57 percent over Sen. Hillary Clinton's (D-NY) 42 percent.

|yea but he is a long way from having the nomination. He will have to do as well as he did here across the rest of the board to win the nomination. ... I have yet to hear Obama with a plan for reinvesting in cities... at least you don't pretend to be unbiased.|

No one is unbiased Catherine.
However, compared to the Washington State main political blogs Sound Politics (for the right) and Horse Ass (for the left), or the msm, I believe I am relatively Fair and Balanced in writing on the race.
I am not paid by either campaign and I don't have advertisers I need to please. That's about as good as one can get.
With that said, I am going to post something more on Huckabee this morning so that should even it out the coverage a bit more.

|Update: Obama Wins Each and Every Washington County
Fixing error gives Obama sweep of all state's counties
By Bob Young
Seattle Times staff reporter
It turns out Barack Obama did win every county in Washington state's Democratic caucuses on Saturday.
The state Democratic Party had initially reported that Hillary Rodham Clinton won just a single county, Douglas, in Eastern Washington by a 53-32 count of delegates.
But now party leaders say someone misreported the results. The correct tally in Douglas County, according to state party Executive Director Jaxon Ravens, is 65 delegates for Obama and 37 for Clinton, completing Obama's sweep of all 39 Washington counties.
