At the 2008 GOP Convention in Minneapolis, I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing former Washington State Senator Slade Gorton.
He is a kind, decent, and thoughtful man, and one of the more underrated Senators.
Had his last opponent not been hotter than some underwear models, he would have won more of the youthful male vote, and the election. Seattle chose style over substance.
