Political Blogger Roundtable

On Monday, April 14 from 10-11 AM, I will be participating in a political bloggers’ roundtable on Weekday with Steve Scher on KUOW 94.9 FM National Public Radio in Seattle.

We will talk about a variety of state and national issues, including:
  • The 2008 Washington governor's race

  • What to expect with the new state primary system

  • The presidential race – the Pennsylvania primary, superdelegates, both Democrat’s chances vs. McCain

  • Other legislative races: Burner-Reichert, Hastings-Fearing, state legislature…

  • State transportation woes – any solutions on the horizon?
  • You can listen live to streaming audio of the broadcast at www.kuow.org. Podcasts are also available if you miss the live broadcast.

    Confirmed Guests:
    David Goldstein is founder and blogger-in-chief of HorsesAss.Org. He came up with the name of the blog as a way to describe anti-taxman Tim Eyman. Goldstein also blogs at Huffington Post and Daily Kos. He lives in Seattle. (studio-confirmed)
