    if you meet him he is a wonderful human being as well as progressive, although Roger Goodman would also be completely OK with me, he seems very liberal. No offense intended to Darcy fans but when you lose two races for us like that, one of which she definitely should have one, you should be finished with the party and not get to jump into a much bluer district where other, equally progressive in every way and more reliable and popular candidates are running. Sorry Darcy.

    And I'm also somewhat worried about vote dilution. Though you seem to fail to realize quite how blue this district is, the centrist crony Democrat might creep through -- which is totally unacceptable in a district this blue. Totally unacceptable. Another reason Darcy should have run elsewhere or stayed out, I also don't approve of her comments calling Obama as bad as a Republican. That's not cool. I know it must suck sometimes but if you want to be Democratic Rep IMO you should be willing to get your party leaders back, even if you disagree with them; that's part of winning the message war and getting, yes, progressives elected, otherwise you get situations -- and I say this as a Kucinich fan and stalwart defender -- like Kucinich's impeachment comments about Libya which dominated the news for days on end to the entire party's detriment. Calling Obama a Republican and saying you'll refuse to support him? -- not constructive.

    Shorter me: I find her generally unreliable and don't think she has potential to go farther up the ladder one day like Goodman and Liias (who are, keep in mind, no less progressive).

    Feel free to try to convince me otherwise, but that's how I feel right now.
