Any opinions of Washington Governor Jay Inslee for president

I heard him speak on a radio interview and he was pretty glib, which I'm usually not a fan of, but everything he said rang true and he seemed to have a command of the points he made.

His wikipedia page is notable in what it doesn't mention. Lots of focus on the environment, though!

The interview I heard was only about global warming.

Don't know much about him but I did catch a very brief interview on TV. He seems to be strong on technology and the environment.

My ears perked up when he said Washington State had a strong net neutrality law. Maybe I heard wrong but I didn't know individual states were doing this.

He is pretty smart but is not especially gifted at persuading opponents. He can be liberal depending on the topic but he seems to work okay with most large companies.

The more the merrier, I would say.

The Dems have a deep bench.

Big fan of Gov Inslee especially the many ways that he and our AG, Bob Ferguson, have stood up to the bully in the other Washington. He was my Congressman for 13 years before becoming governor, met him a few times including at my son's middle school science fair where he came to encourage kids to go into science/tech fields. He's solidly liberal across the board and especially strong on green energy.

I was just discussing with someone today that we've never had a President from Washington, of course that would be cool. Unlikely in 2020, but still cool. He's got great VP potential. Could make climate change work his big project.

As for net neutrality, California also signed this into law this fall. Of course the Trump admin immediately threatened to sue so both states are preparing for that.

He will need to be glib against Pres. Trump.
