    I now live in Sonoma Co. which is a generally very progressive area. Given the new ballot system, my choices were between two Democrats in several elections, so it is certainly very possible that Pelosi could be matched against a Dem in the general election. The primaries are now all consolidated.

    She has long shown very sharp elbows at keeping the merest whisper of competition shoved under the rug. That is what has made it possible for her to ignore the views of her constituents and follow a centrist path to power.
