  •  Not necessarily a bad idea (0+ / 0-)

    Sheehan primary-ing Pelosi wouldn't be a bad idea. Taking back the party has to take place in the primary process.

    Sadly, she's running as an independent, IIRC - and that gives it the potential to split the vote.

    •  that's our "democracy" for you (0+ / 0-)

      Pilosi is in a pretty safe district .. cause that's how california was divided up (yet another spineless democratic move, this one at the state level).  I'd rather her primary Pilosi as well, as it would clearly allow people to vote more their conscience vs. an independent bid, where you'll get a lot of that boogyman talk about spoiling the vote (something you get rid of if you have IRV).  Once Pilosi wins, she can then take that win as a "mandate" from the people, when really her support might be soft.

      You can lead an elephant to water but you can't make 'em think.
