I don't comment much on my blogs about California Politics as I think it's about as screwed up as it can get. I barely have time to keep up with the Federal issues and races much less the intercine warfare what seems routine in California.

On of the interesting aspects of California Elections is that you can have a Governor of one party, like Gov. Muscles, and a Lt. Governor of another like Cruz Bustamonte, a Democrat.

Consequently the race for Lt. Governor is no small chickenfeed race yet it gets small coverage and is usually won by the person with be greatest name recognition. I found a video for one candidate, State Senator Jackie Speier , that speaks to a character building horrific experience in her life. I encourage all California Kossacks to watch it. It may get you to go through her website more throughly and help you make a choice. It's done that for me.

The Video is on her site and at Political Interviews. I hope to get a phone interview this week.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
