    1. Re NM Senate:  The thought of Tom Udall being tapped for the cabinet saddens but doesn't surprise me.  If you will recall, in 2009 not only did President Obama pick Salazar as mentioned, but appointed two red-state governors (Napolitano of Arizona and Sebelius of Kansas), whose seats are now in conservative hands.   I would rather he show his bipartisanship by appointing Republican senators from states with Democratic governors.  

    2.  Re CA-03:  Don't be overconfident about this district.  Yes, John Garamendi is a strong campaigner and fund-raiser, but this is by nature a swing seat, especially in midterm elections.  Vic Fazio represented a very similar seat in the 1990s, and had to fight for re-election every time.  When he retired, it flipped to the Reeps for 14 years.  Assemblymember Logue is very much in the Republican wheelhouse these days, and should not be dismissed, despite his health issues.
