Ok, I'll be honest, I don't know all that much about Christine Webb. My knowledge begins and ends with that she came into the race against Brian Baird very late, and seemingly to attempt to beat out a less than establishment Republican that had been making waves in the Ron Paul sense.
My argument is that only a Ron Paul type Republican could beat Brian Baird this time around. Well, a financed Paul Republican, but that would require some support from the local Republican establishment and maybe they're not ready for that yet.
Ok, here's my argument: Baird is a great in-district guy. No one on his staff is allowed to run for local office (no link for this fact, I just know its a fact). There's absolutely nothing wrong with that, but it emphasizes that Baird doesn't like to face off against local Republican leaders in the field.
So, the typical "he's forgotten about us" argument won't work against Baird. Therefore it would also be hard to gain traction against him with the local chamber of commerce, Lion Clubs folks.
Cheryl Crist is making a run at Baird from the left, but with Olympia only being a very small portion of the district, and Baird being an incumbent from her own party, she'll have a harder go at it.
So, where does that leave us? People not taken to insurrection (chamber types) are out. The progressive community can't make a run at Baird from the left, so the best candidate would be from the right who could attract protest votes from the left and mobilize disaffected conservatives.
If someone is to knock off Baird, it will only be an anti-war righty, Michael Delavar.
By the way, over at Politics is a blood sport blog, they seem to be pointing to a inter-party fight down in Clark County between the Delavar folks and Webb folks. Maybe Delavar can pull it off.
