    ...they being mainstream Democrats...for someone to take the first step... to get into the pool and declare the water "Fine."

    Take a look at California... things were looking "marginally OK" for proposition 19 in the last couple weeks leading up to the election, but still lost by what... eight points?  Ten?

    Incidentally the percentage margin of defeat for Prop 19 was pretty close to the margin of Victory for Barbara Boxer--one of the most reliably liberal votes in the Senate--who opposed the measure.

    I'm guessing it will be back of course, and eventually California will do the right thing before the rest of the country (as is often the case) but will any of the big names be behind it when it passes?  And whether they are or not, what will their response be?

    Great diary.
