    •  Not a bad idea at all (0+ / 0-)

      Although if Sen. Feinstein retires this go-'round, obviously Atty. Gen. Harris or Secy. Bowen should run in 2016, when Sen. Boxer will presumably retire.

      And for all this talk of Bowen failing to win this seat, yes, it's true - but lest we forget, CA-36 is up again in November 2012.

      Speaking of which, in terms of the Congressional LGBT Caucus, I'd be perfectly happy to swap the devastatingly unpopular Rep. Cicilline for Marko Liiiiiiiiiiias in WA-01, Anne Kaiser in MD-06 (if she's drawn in), and/or Lt. Dan Choi in CA-??

      •  it's a shame Cicilline screwed up (0+ / 0-)

        Providence so badly. I really thought he might be the first openly gay senator or governor one day. Nor am I optimistic for the state's other gay "rising star," House speaker Gordon Fox, who is now on the defensive for pushing civil unions (unpopular with both supporters and opponents of gay marriage). Oh well. I just wish my state would once in a while do something to not totally embarrass me, being from here and all.

          Lots of Democrats would kill for a delegation like that. Like, oh, say, in Connecticut.

          •  True (0+ / 0-)

            but as a gay Rhode Islander, I wanted my state to make gay history. Now it seems like we can't even pass gay marriage. Embarrassing...
