    As a Washingtonian I’m a big Jay Inslee fan, but I don’t think he’s running for President; nobody outside of Washington has even heard of him, as far as I can tell (hell, I’m a politics nerd and I don’t think *I* could tell you who the governors of more than maybe ten states are off the top of my head). As Jaybird said, he’s running for running mate, or perhaps a cabinet position or similar high-level job in a future Democratic administration; his term will be up next year and while technically there’s no term limit for the office, it’s a standing Washington gubernatorial tradition not to run for a third term, or at least it has been for the last 40-odd years. So he’s looking to keep his political career going, and he’s smart enough to realize he’s never going to get the nomination, so if he drops out once a frontrunner emerges and backs them, he can draft off of their wake into his next job.Report
