LIVE from Spokane: Senator Amy Klobuchar funny, inspiring

A few moments ago, Washington State Democrats heard from Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, who filled in for Senator John Kerry as keynote speaker.

I think Klobuchar's energy took a lot of people by surprise. She was funny and inspiring, witty and chipper. She creatively linked the states of Washington and Minnesota together culturally, and praised Senators Murray and Cantwell for their work in the United States Senate, particular Murray's helpfulness in appropriating funds to repair the collapsed bridge in Minneapolis last year.

Klobuchar's sense of humor really shone during her forty plus minute address, as did her gift for storytelling.
