Well, it's looking like Slade Gorton at least got the weather forecast right, if not the political forecast:
And I agree with Charles that the 71 percent turnout prediction for King County is stunning. It's a repudiation of the "enthusiasm gap" meme, Seattle edition; proof that Obama still has pull here (remember, he showed up for a huge get-out-the-vote rally right as ballots were arriving, and told people to basically go directly from the rally to the mailbox); and validation that grass roots organizing (not to mention Facebook GOTV harassment) works.
One quibble with Charles, though. I think this is less about bodies—though on Nov. 2 there were certainly a lot of bodies rushing to the last-minute ballot drop boxes—and more about stamps. Stamps are cheap. They let your body (and your labor) be wherever it needs to be on election day while a stamped envelope goes and votes for you.
In that 71 percent turnout figure, we are seeing the triumph of this simple concept.
