Federal and state political campaigns dominated the airwaves this evening in Seattle. We had to run an errand to Northgate Mall and as we were leaving noticed a couple dozen people had gathered around four TV screens to catch the last debate between presidential candidates McCain and Obama. Young, old, men, women, workers, shoppers, it was generating attentive listening and animated conversations. We listened to the remainder on the car radio. At home afterward we listened to the Washington State gubernatorial debate between Governor Gregoire and challenger former state senator Dino Rossi.
