  •  Does DiFi = Diane Feinstein? (0+ / 0-)

    Because I'm not happy with her as a Senator. She hasn't even come out in favor of changing the filibuster situation. And like you said she's a corporatist. I would hope we could do better than that.
    Arnie is never going to hold political office again.
    Not familiar with Bowen.
    The name I hear bandied about is Kamila Harris. Not too sure what I think about her.

    •  Yeah, that's the DiFi (1+ / 0-)

      we know and hold our noses to vote for.

      Bowen is termed out as Secretary of State, so she'll either need to find another office to run for or go out and get a real job. ;-) (I'm kidding -- she's done a great job of keeping our elections as clean as possible, including ditching the election machines in the majority of the state (our precinct has one solely for use by the disabled if desired...and I've never seen anyone use it.)

      Harris is another possibility; she's a good progressive (opposes the death penalty which is tough when you're the Attorney General), and it would be good to have both a woman and person of color in the Governor's Office if only for the potential for head-explosions amongst the Reactionary Right.
