Morals of this story: 1) It matters who's governor. 2) If you want to stay in elected office past the age of 75, try the Seattle City Council.

Meanwhile: Any guesses as to who it will be? (Don't say Richard Sanders. That guy is actually still on the court a year after his defeat at the polls, finishing out his extended pro-tem term.)
