As a CEO, Mr. McGavick certainly has the right credentials for a Senator. With his compensation ($8,854,747.00 in 2004), he can really understand the needs and challenges of working families and those struggling to decide between buying food or buying medicine. Queue the older actors and the family actors for those compassionate conservative photo shoots! CEO’s are also noted for their ability to get along with others – there’s no actual reason that whole organization chart all rolls up to just one king! He’s a common man of the people who gets along with others. Grassroots all the way!
And, in the other corner, we have the sitting Senator, Maria Cantwell, fighting for the rate payers of Snohomish County against Enron.
