    I guess my view of "more and better Democrats" is that sometimes it's hard for a liberal Dem to win a conservative state/district, but a conservative/moderate Dem can. And then, that can serve as a bridge to electing more liberal Dems.

    "Has to be conservative" might have been poor wording on my part. I meant, if she is conservative on some issues, I dont think that it should be held against her.

    I certainly support a primary, and it would be up to Dems to look at the entire record and views of all the candidates to see if one is too conservative or not.

      I think we're largely in agreement - mostly I wanted to push back some on the common wisdom.  But yeah, if she doesn't support an assault weapons ban or something like that, I don't think that would be grounds (by itself) for disqualifying her.  Background checks, on the other hand...
