  •  you forgot mike thompson and george miller (none)
    unless the delta doesn't count as the valley. while thompson's district is spread up the coast, davis in yolo county is the largest city in the whole 1st congressional district. as for matsui, sacramento is solid democratic, and not at risk. it's a safe seat, and you would have to cut sac in two and gerrymander the hell out of it to make it competitive. the valley as a whole might be reactionary, but the delta and sacramento are pretty blue. cardoza and costa are more worrying, though.

    •  Thomson's Toast Too. (none)
      The Thomson seat would most likely be made into a nice, compact square, incorporating Trinity, Shasta, Modoc, Siskiyou counties.  It would become a Rep seat.

      Miller would probably be okay, but the most conservative areas of Contra Costa Co, would most-likely fall into his district or Eleln Taucher's instead of being in Pombo's.  Their districts would go from safe to competitive.
