79. The system is not simply "invested" in the status quo - the Big Shot Dems rig
The system to be that way.

to run for office as a Dem inside the SF Bay Area, you have to be buddies with Diane Feinstein, or else a close friend of a friend of a friend.

People who are progressive are actively discouraged from seeking any type of leadership role.

I hate saying this, but politically speaking, I cannot see much difference between Schwarzenegger and Di Fi. They both support a woman's right to choose. They both are adverse to Single Payer Universal Health Care - Ahnold having vetoed the statewide bill several times, and Di Fi certainly will roll up her sleeves if she gets to be governor and should such a state bill come to her desk.
