Obama coming to Washington in August; maybe Palin too

President Barack Obama is coming to Seattle to headline a fundraiser for Sen. Patty Murray, the Seattle Times reports, quoting an unnamed White House official.

The Aug. 17 fundraiser will help launch Murray into the general election, assuming she survives the primary that same day. That’s when she faces off against 14 challengers, including Republicans Dino Rossi, Clint Didier and Paul Akers.

Didier told me today his most prominent backer, Sarah Palin, may come to Washington to stump for him.

He expects a visit between Aug. 1 and the primary, when he’ll try to knock off the better-known Rossi.

    Yahoo!!!!!!! Murray must be plenty worried if she has to drag the President away from the White House to come save her butt—not that it will help! Obama has such a poor rating among Americans across this nation that he will probably do more harm than good.

    I hope Palin makes it to town. I’ve never heard her speak in person and would love to attend.

    I hear that Palin got half way here and quit and went home. Just like she got half way through her commitment to represent Alaska as governor and quit. Balin Palin is the ideal republican candidate. I don’t believe in God – but just in case I PRAY she runs for President on the GOP ticket. PLEASE Sarah PLEASE run. It would guarantee a Democrat win by 10 points. Even republicans I know say they would never vote for her. She’s got an eight cylinder motor and only about four of those puppies are firing!

  3. Nearly as good as you’re at overlaying this you are going to put together yourself to jot down a guide on the topic… and I will probably be your first buyer.
