Governor Gregoire on Daily Kos

Governor Chris Gregoire posted her first ever diary to Daily Kos this afternoon:
Something remarkable is happening. It’s happening all over the country, from Idaho to South Carolina, from Alabama to Iowa, and yesterday, I saw it happen here, first hand in my home state of Washington. Democrats showed up in record numbers to participate in the primary political system.

A short description of the reaction to my travels to two different caucus sites is simply, "Wow."

When I arrived at Kamiak High School in Mukilteo, a town in Snohomish County, north of Seattle, the place was already overflowing with caucus goers. The huge crowd made it almost impossible to navigate to the three rooms needed to accommodate everyone. The cafeteria, gymnasium and athletic room were packed with energized Washingtonians. It was inspiring.
The Governor is responding to comments, so if you're part of the Daily Kos community, head on over to thank her for joining in the conversation online.
