Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet has jumped into the Democratic scrum for the presidency. I foresee the following scenario. Biden sustains his lead for a few months and makes the case for a pragmatic path to defeating Trump. The Left pretty much vetoes Biden, who stumbles himself. And then voters turn to an untarnished, experienced, purple-state moderate, such as Klobachar or Bennet. I like the Bennet resume: business experience, top deputy mayor of Denver, Denver school superintendent, family of public service, strong appeal in a purple state, smart and effective and well liked.
One key problem is that Port of Seattle Commissioners are poorly compensated, poorly staffed, and often motivated by other concerns—like advancing in the political game or carving out a business niche. They get cultivated by powerful companies managed by the Port and hungering for development opportunities.
