Riley Sweeney is a young - under 30 - political junkie who loves getting immersed in the jumble of opinions. While a Democratic Party operative, he is on good terms with most all political activists of all persuasions. And he works hard on his Political Junkie blog.
Today he posted a meaty interview with Rick Larsen, our 2nd District reprentative to the U.S. Congress. Rick is, of course, up for reelection this fall. Many of us who consider ourselves liberal get a sour taste in our mouths when Rick's name comes up. And yet, elections are usually about the lessor of two lousy choices. Some may feel Riley is too soft on Rick, but we should remember that Riley is still getting a feel for what is possible. The interview is well worth reading and possibly commenting on.
