I don’t think this distinction is meaningful to modern readers.
Thank you to the millions of readers who tuned in. Please now return to your regularly scheduled activities.
Best of luck to Jay Inslee, who seems like a man with fine politics who will not be president.
“My first act will be to ask Megan Rapinoe to be my Secretary of State.” - Jay Inslee.
Inslee says that climate is Trump’s “weakest point” and “we must defeat him at his weakest point” and he is the best climate candidate therefore he is the best candidate to defeat Trump. Time will tell if America buys this logic :)
“Defeating the climate crisis has to be the number one priority of the United States of America. If it’s not job one, it won’t get done,” Inslee says. “We must get off coal.”
“Come on up, I’ll get you to go kayaking and a job with the state of Washington,” Inslee says to disability activist. This was very strange, to me.
Activist asks Inslee if he will sign legislation protecting disability rights and improving health care coverage for people with disabilities. Inslee says that yes... he supports these things.
Inslee signed a net neutrality statute as governor. Talks about Washington state’s good economy. “Progressive values mean economic growth.” Interesting statement in light of the belief that economic growth long term is incompatible with curbing climate change.
I suspect Jay Inslee of artificial tanning methods.
Like Castro, Inslee needs to find a trademark wacky hat to wear to distinguish himself in this crowded field.
Inslee talking about how he supports abortion rights.
Inslee asked about how to revitalize US labor unions. Says unions need to restore “the power of collective bargaining to America,” etc. Also notes he was only candidate to talk about unions during the debate. Says new clean energy jobs must be union jobs. “We will have a new suite of collective bargaining laws” under…
Inslee advocates getting rid of the filibuster. “Senator Warren is the only senator who has joined my call to end the filibuster,” Inslee says, grasping for a bit of the Warren shine.
Jay Inslee, watching hundreds of people stream out of the room, says we must make Donald Trump “a blip in history.”
Warren receives another very large standing ovation at the end of her remarks. There is an ENORMOUS exodus of people as Jay Inslee takes the stage, ha.
“I’m very uneasy about proposals that would further politicize” the Supreme Court, Warren says. Notes that there are proposals like using rotating judges that would de-politicize the court. Also says the Supreme Court for many years has not really protected people, and legislation is better.
Warren advocates increasing union power, “Making it easy” to unionize. Shouts out teachers unions specifically.
Warren advocates wealth tax to fund universal child care, pre-K, raising wages of child care workers and teachers, increasing school funding, eliminate higher ed tuition, cancel student loan debt.
A local activist asks Warren about public education. “I used to line my dollies up and teach them,” she says. Now she launches into a mini stump speech about how she went to college for $50 a semester and became a special needs teacher.
