  •  Some good could come from this (0+ / 0-)

    if Boxer really gets into her head for once and for all who her base is.

    That base--largely including the participants in this venue--has to be kept happy, bottom line. (There are times in her career when Boxer hasn't seemed to take this seriously enough.)

    •  Yeah, but the race will be won in the middle. (4+ / 0-)

      If you look at who wins statewide offices in California, they tend to be politically more moderate. Dianne Feinstein gets way more votes than Boxer.  Schwarzenagger won, Gray Davis was a moderate Dem who lengthened criminal sentences, etc. We may not like it, but it's a fact.  I'd forgive Boxer for playing less to the base and more to the middle in the GE. Jerry Brown is doing that already, and he probably knows California politics better than anyone.
