Longshot bid: Inslee is saddling up for a presidential run

OLYMPIA ó Can a little known thoroughbred from the Pacific Northwest capture the 2020 derby of Democratic presidential candidates?

It sure looks like Jay Inslee is saddling up to try.

Heís got a signature issue on which to run, climate change, and a political committee with which to raise seed money, Vision PAC. Not bad for a longshot.

Itís premature to dismiss outright the two-term governorís chances of outflanking, outmaneuvering and outlasting what is expected to be a large field of political horses. Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton were far from front-runners two years before either of them wound up in the White House.

1. I love Jay Inslee

but he's charismatically challenged and will have a hard time braking through the clutter in a crowded field. He'd make a great VP.
