Short Take: Gates endorses governor

Microsoft chief executive Bill Gates appeared last night at a Democratic fundraiser for Washington Governor Gary Locke. Gates gave a two-minute speech, making no mention of a federal judge calling his company a monopoly, according to the Associated Press. Rather, he spent the bulk of the speech endorsing Locke. The governor, speaking in Gates's defense, said that Microsoft eventually will prevail, according to AP.
