    how a Neocon like DiFi could keep being reelected by CA--and be more popular than Boxer who, if not a liberal lioness, is at least mildly progressive! CA should be fielding senators like VT! DiFi is the kind of "Democrat" one would expect to get in someplace like GA (expect Michelle Nunn to carry on the tradition, should she get to the senate, but, thankfully, without the seniority), or my own KY (I'm not saying that Grimes is like this--she's said nothing either way--but it wouldn't be surprising). CA is PRECISELY the kind of place we need BETTER Democrats!

    •  Neocon Dems (0+ / 0-)

      The problem is that today's Dem Party is filled with Clinton neocons wearing "Bold Progressive" stickers. I think people have so much anxiety about the right wing that they'll vote for anyone on the Dem ticket, even as the Dem Party was pulled to the right. This won't change unless we can figure out a way to organize and MAKE the party start representing the people.
