  •  She's a hard case (6+ / 0-)

    really does not give a damn what Californians think.

    Then again, we had a shot at her in 2006 and no one tried to take her out.  So it's not like she's really afraid of the voters.

      That's why she keeps coming back.  The average voter there probably wouldn't even know her face from a club sandwich.

      Only dead fish go with the flow.

      •  It's a tough state (5+ / 0-)

        Very large, lots of media markets, entrenched and sclerotic Democratic Party machine.  No local organization to speak of, endless, meaningless 30-second ads at election time.

        We're only learning how to get the word out right now.  Nothing gets on the teevee, nothing gets into the newspapers.  So the voters don't know.

        It's not that most voters don't give a fuck.  It's that even when they do, getting good info takes a lot more motivation than it ought to take.
