3. As a native San Franciscan I know Senator Feinstein has been a tireless advocate

For people. Sometimes she has been more pragmatic than progressive but she can be convinced to change her mind if you give her a good argument.

4. I was a teenager in the San Francisco area when George Moscone and Harvey Milk were murdered--

and I think for many girls/young women my age, Dianne Feinstein became a role model as far as women in powerful political positions.

She was an icon as mayor of San Francisco, so I have always been an admirer of her leadership and tenacity. I know that she hasn't always been as progressive as some would like her to be.

Because I grew up with her as a role model, it is difficult for me to look at her objectively and critically. I think she has had an amazing political career, and I would hate to see it end.

6. Thanks, and she is tough as nails. Like Hillary, she is actually a TOUGH and smart woman who

would destroy a piece of shit like rump or pence in a debate or in a comparison of morals.

9. People who apply these litmus tests have NO clue, none, what it takes to

accomplish anything in the Senate.

There are well known senators with very very little in the "accomplishment" column, but she is not one of them.

She has accomplished a great deal and has been smart about it.

Look at uber-lib hero Dennis Kucinich.

His major accomplishments during his eight terms in the House were getting two Post Offices in Cleveland named after someone or other.

Hoo-fucking-ray. Let's make him Governor.


Dianne Feinstein gets @#$% done. Important @#$%. And she is smart about it.

10. If they don't live here it isn't up to them. I pay no attention to those

 

outside CA who think they can define our candidates for us. We have a Democratic government and lead the way on many progressive issues so consider the source.

15. They are the ones who are not liberal or progressive...

 

They endorse anti choice candidates and candidates who do not care about equality and civil rights.

16. Feinstein needs to get out of the way because she's too moderate and cozy with Republicans

Nancy Pelosi needs to get out of the way because she’s so liberal Republicans hate her.

You know... Any port in a storm.

18. I'm voting for de Leon

 

Last edited Tue May 1, 2018, 10:24 PM - Edit history (1)

He's closer to my values. He also garnered more votes at the state Democratic convention.

Given California's current top two candidate system, the general election will probably between de Leon vs Feinstein.

So, either way, a Democrat will hold that seat.

I feel no problem with voting against Feinstein in this case. More than that, I'm voting for de Leon. I like the guy and what he stands for.

Here's a link to some comparisons that cropped up before the convention. It's a decent cursory primer for people unfamiliar with them and where they are situated.
