      For decades in CA, the legislatire drew Congressional districts to protect Democrats and for decades, Republicans sued to have them redrawn. In 2000, the Dems decided they were tired of the protracted legal battles and just drew districts to protect which ever party occupied the seat. Presto, no lawsuits.

      The great housing boom earlier this decade saw a hell of a lot of Bay Area liberals move into the conservative part of CA-11. Richard Pombo's Republican seat became impossible to hold. McNerney holds on barely.
