16. I'll look it up, but he's a great guy. All I found is this:

Washington Governor expresses concern on Tibet crisis

by Yeshe Choesang, The Tibet Post International - 06 June 2013



Dharamshala: Governor Washington Jay Inslee expressed his deep concern for the situation in Tibet and hoped that the legitimate concern of the Tibetan people is addressed.

According to the Central Tibetan Administration, Inslee said this while interacting with Mr Tashi Namgyal, member of Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile, during the Governor's Reception honouring the Washington State Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs, the Washington State Commission on African American Affairs, the Washington State Commission on Hispanic Affairs and the Governor's Office of Indian Affairs.

Governor Inslee was a member of the US House of Representative representing the Ist Congressional District. He had spoken in favor of House resolution 1077 calling on the Chinese government to end its crackdown in Tibet and to enter into a substantive dialogue with His Holiness the Dalai Lama to resolve the problem of Tibet.

He was a member of the bipartisan Congressional delegation led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi that met with His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala in 2008.


http://www.thetibetpost.com/en/news/tpi-short-takes/3438-washington-governor-expresses-concern-on-tibet-crisis

I see no mention of his Inslee's beliefs other than he had a high liberal rating despite being on board with Clinton and his love of the environment. He has a lot of labor support and acted quickly to protect women's rights as soon as he was elected from hospitals that were being sold to religious groups and trying to avoid giving women choice. And he ran on expanding Medicaid and the ACA.

17. I thought the OP looked like it might be in Dharamsala.

"Yeshe' is an.. honorific.. a person of certain knowledge or wisdom...
My ex-wife, and still dear friend, is Chinese and is a student of H.E. Ayang Rinpoche, whom I met through her.

Inslee seems a good human being. How fortunate.

although I'd love to be surprised - but I see Julian Castro as the candidate who can turn Texas blue. Hillary does have a lot of support here amongst labor.

Julián Castro's DNC Keynote Speech - Elections 2012


Published on Sep 4, 2012

Mayor Julián Castro of San Antonio delivered the keynote speech Tuesday night at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, the same speech that propelled then-Senator Barack Obama to fame in 2004.

12. There were many, many high points of the 2012 Democratric Convention - the Castros

were one of them.

Just as I remember "the skinny guy with the funny name" at the 2004 convention, I remember the Castros from 2012.

Carina's got that trademark mile-wide smile!

40. I guess I was saying that I have heard it (and used it myself) to refer to a cute baby or

person. I complimented a proud papa with it in a restaurant in Palermo and got a big smile and "grazie."

but I agree with the definition of "beloved." Wonderful thing to say about someone and such a pretty name for that girl...

19. This is exciting. Maybe not a Progressive President, but we could get a Progressive VP. These guys

 

have had to move to the Right to be Leftists. Their mother is an amazing woman and her "baggage" is that she was part of La Raza Unida for farmworker's rights. Rosie Castro.

Needless to say, that was a bit of a political magic to pull off getting elected as the Mayor of San Antonio and a member of the Statehouse.

Also, the Castros embody what it is to really, really be a Hispanic...not just a HINO.

20. I agree - Hillary has the name recognition

and Julian Castro would be a great choice as VP. He has been a very successful and well-loved mayor of San Antonio (he captured 82% of the vote in his 2011 reelection).

24. The Castros are young

and that's why I always talk about them being the up and comers for 2020/2024. If you look at demographics 2024 is where we finally get into purple territory anyway. He's the best weapon we've got against George P. Bush who will be coming up at that time as well.

The Democrats would hold office for 24 straight years.

29. I don't know that Hillary really needs him honestly -

she is so popular with labor here as it is. But it will only help to have Castro enthusiastically campaigning for her (which he will).

I'm convinced it will be 2020-24 that demographics bring us closer to having a shot at Texas. But I would LOVE for it to come sooner.

Right now I'm focusing on Wendy.

31. depends on who the GOP puts up

For example, Chris Christie might pick this partner:

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2013/11/chris-christie-susana-martinez-is-this-your-2016-republican-ticket/281360/

If so, while this will not blunt the whole "woman for prez" angle that Hillary is using, it can weaken it, plus the fact that a latino would be on the ticket could seriously screw with Hillary. The only cracks in the Red State bloc in the South are the Latino areas, and Hillary could use someone like Castro to make a difference in places like Texas. If Martinez is in and Hillary does not have some response, it could sink her, after all, (and I say this who hates the GOP) it's not like Vice president Susana Martinez would not make the history books, as both first lady Veep, and first latino. Castro would help make Texas more purple, while without him, Susana could play the role of "I a a lady from New Mexico, I can understand you."

32. Good points -

but I think Hillary already has that market (Latina women I spoke with during the Obama/Clinton primary in 2008 liked Hillary better ... they promised to work for Obama in the general but they really wanted her). Then again I love Julian Castro so if he can get the nod I'd be more than pleased. He's an excellent candidate in 2016, 2020, 2024 etc ...

Hillary is very much loved by the latina women here in the Houston area. They were willing to support Obama but in the primary they were bullish on Hillary.

41. He's 39 and is in his 2nd term as mayor -

which may be a good counter to her being older (though Reagan was also elected at 69).

He also was tapped to delivered the keynote address at the 2012 Democratic National Convention as Obama was. He would be a good VP pick. I think he will be a factor for awhile - great story with his parents as community organizers and AFAIK nothing negative to worry about. Being from Texas has to be the selling point though because there are other talented young democrats out there as well (Martin O'Malley comes immediately to mind etc).
