13. No...what I meant was
Edited on Wed May-18-11 03:06 AM by Ken Burch
By splitting the progressive vote through your vote for Bowen(who hadn't done anything in particular to deserve your vote MORE than Marcy did)you helped throw the seat to Hahn.

And really, Bowen wasn't superior in any particular way. She should just have stood against Feinstein in 2012. Now, she can't even do that.
