  •  Tried calling my CA senators DiFi and Boxer (7+ / 0-)

    Both lines were not answered.
    I have written earlier to DiFi and am extremely disappointed with her response, as well as her representation of progressive causes.
    Too bad we don't have a better candidate for CA!

    •  Di-Fi isn't progressive at all. (2+ / 0-)

      Well, she can occasionally surprise, but really she's a relic from a former era when California Democrats could be socially somewhat liberal, but otherwise thoroughly conservative. I really thought 2006 would be her last term in office, but she's back again. And no one will challenge her for the seat because they know they'd be crushed in a primary - both in terms of money and endorsements.

      Maybe by 2018 she'll be ready to finally retire.
