When I moved to Washington state in 1988, there were several female news anchors that stood out. One of them was Susan Hutchison. She was demure and soft-spoken. Contrast then to now and the difference is night and day. That Susan does not exist anymore. What we have now is a control freak who will stop at nothing to get her way.
An example might be the place and time of any debates between her and Maria Cantwell. There are several top Republicans in the state: Dino Rossi, Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Jamie Herrera Beutler. But to me, the most dangerous Republican is Hutchinson. I did not know her politics in 1988, but she is in your face now. I wonder what happened? She does not seem to be interested in any women’s issues and wants to be one of the boys.
One of her famous confrontations was with Sen. Ted Cruz, whom she called a traitor when he would not endorse Donald Trump, even after Trump attacked Cruz’s family. That did not matter to Susan. She put her worst foot forward and acted as if that was her finest hour. Now, she is running for the U.S. Senate with the mantra “18 years is enough”!
The state of Washington would be better served with the old Susan, but the in-your-face Hutchison is what is wrong with Washington, D.C.
