Was Just Listening To Democracy Now And Her Guest

was Barbara Lee, CA talking about the Congressional Black Caucus, HOWEVER she commented several times about The Congressional Black Caucus AND The Congressional Caucus Pack and the differences. I was a little confused about what she was trying to actually communicate, but she DID SAY that she HAS NOT endorsed and won't until she feels she's comfortable about which candidate addresses the issues that concerns her and the one she feels more comfortable with.

So their endorsement today isn't as clear as some here think. She DID say she has not endorsed.

The program also addressed the Super delegates and state delegates saying Super delegates are important, but can at any time change.

The program was VERY interesting today, also talking about MEDIA COVERAGE and how unfair it's been to Bernie Sanders!

So, Bernie supporters it doesn't sound like ANYTHING IS SET IN STONE! Glad I watched it... watch the replay or online if you can.

1. Barbara Lee is wonderful

I keep hoping that DiFi will retire and Lee will run for her spot.

On that note, Kamala Harris is running for Boxer's spot, which I think is good news. We could have two dynamic women representing us.

4. Had To Go Out... Just Saw This Reply, BUT

I've lived here for far too many years and own my house here AND my husband is a native. Plus both of my kids and their kids live very close, so while I love CA, I'M STUCK here!

I did visit San Francisco once and loved it! Although, I'm kind of ticked off at Nancy Pelosi right now AND Barbara Boxer. Also heard a little while ago about some negative comments Diane Feinstein made about Bernie. Not sure what to think because I ALWAYS felt THEY were the ones that would be more opened minded about Bernie.

But today our Democratic Party looks nothing like the one I joined a long time ago. I'm aware many here don't agree with me, but I am disappointed that they didn't even think twice before jumping in with Hillary.

I've known that the Party hasn't really worked very hard for us in many years, so not sure why I let this upset me. I feel they ALL could have spoken out on many, many occasions even IF they didn't have control, but they rarely did.

Ok, that's it.

10. I'm disappointed with all the jumping on Hillary's bandwagon

But Boxer has consistently worked for us. So I (semi) forgive her for that. DiFi not so much. I will rejoice when she retires.

6. Of course you've got room in California, everyone from California is moving up here to Oregon!


(I have nothing but love for ex-Californians moving to Oregon)

5. Kamala Harris endorsed Hillary.

That tells me all I need to know about her.

Ms. Harris knows which side her political bread is buttered here in CA.

8. Yeah I have mixed feelings about her.

I don't think she will be bad, but she might be DiFi lite.
