    She has the potential to chance the face of the California Democratic Party to a more vibrant party.

    •  I'm voting for Jackie! She's a kick-ass (1+ / 0-)

      progressive; and she survived Jonestown! She worked for Ryan (who didn't). And she's been a committed progressive for a very long time. I agree with your view that she could change the party in a very positive and active way — Go Jackie! How good I feel about her kinda makes up for my distaste for Jerry . . .

    •  That's interesting (0+ / 0-)

      And it sounds very compelling - can you specify how she would do this? I've heard men say they're voting for her because she's hot. There is nothing wrong with that, just curious...

      •  Nothing wrong w/voting for her cause she's hot? (1+ / 0-)

        Not the best criteria, especially since she's a very strong progressive. I'm having a memory glitch; I think she used to work for Ron Dellums (vote for him for Mayor of Oakland on Tues.) or was it Barbara Lee? Either way, that's a pretty good background to start from.

          worked for Dellums.

          There is nothing wrong with Speirs BEING hot. And if Speirs and Geremendi are even, then I find nothing wrong with Speirs' hotness tipping the balance. Hotness, in my opinion, is large parts presense and charisma; charisma inspires.

      •  It's many things (0+ / 0-)

        It's her inner stregnth. It's her personal story (she experienced tragedy twice). And it's her record of accomplishments.
