Aren't ignorance and repression delightful?


Look at that thread.

And then think that most who disapprove of having two candidates in our Democratic primary for the Senate are probably not from California or don't vote here.

DeLeon is from Southern California. He is not an extreme left candidate. He was/is the president of the California Senate and a great candidate.

But look at all those who with no information about the contest or the candidates comment as if they were God's judgment on the issue.

We need to change this. We need to ask DUers to inform themselves before rushing to judgment and responding based on ignorance of the facts.

DeLeon's challenge to Feinstein will give Feinstein a chance to either show that she is up to another 6 years in the Senate or allow a younger candidate from Southern California to take her place.

The contest will be fair.

No. It won't destroy the chances of the ultimate winner of this race. Whoever wins will go on to the Senate because Republicans are a minority in California. The Republican governors nearly bankrupted our state and are way, way out of favor.

But this is a lesson about why Democrats lost the 2016 election.

Too rigid. Too opinionated about things they know nothing about.

Let's lighten up a bit. There are arguments for Feinstein. There are arguments for DeLeon. Either of them would do an acceptable job.

But if you aren't in California and don't know our system, please don't comment on our primaries.

1. The loss in 16 was due to some refusing to vote for the Democratic nominee...and as for

your primary ...hope it does not backfire and you get a pug...but if Feinstein is not re-elected we have still lost a great person who had stature and power minority leader of Judiciary...for a nothing junior Senator...but I think she will win. She is way up in the polls. I would like to add...your post is extremely unpleasant.

4. I'm not the only one to post unpleasant statements.


The strategy is to run two Democrats in the primary so that they will be the two top candidates that go forward for the November general election. That way Republicans are eliminated.

Remember, Hillary won by a huge margin in California. Running really liberal candidates in general gets Democrats loyal to our Party and out to vote.

It's other states that try to pander to conservatives and are afraid to run real liberals that failed to get enough Democrats out to vote for Hillary and lost the election.

If California had been typical for states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, etc., Hillary would have won. She won by a wide margin in California.

3. Thanks. We have a complicated primary system that usually favors Democrats.


We need to have two Democrats running against each other in a primary taking first and second place and eliminating Republican candidates in the general election which, regardless of party, runs the two top candidates in the primary against each other.

So running two Democrats in the primary makes a Democratic win in the general election more not less likely.

But all these ignorant DUers are opining without knowing the facts suggesting that only one Democrat should run in the primary.

Know what you are writing about before you opine, please.
