12. I guess they are all "really" Republicans though two ARE registered Dems...

Jane Harman and Blanche Lincoln are BOTH DINOs. Yes, I also think of them as Republicans in their mindset too, but I wasn't wrong in calling them Democrats. From the quotes of yesterday, would you also call Obama and Clinton Republicans for supporting "Republican" Blanche Lincoln?

and stealing away slots from good Democrats like Marcy Winograd because of the corporate hold over our party that sometimes tries to stress gender or race (think of what Harold Ford said yesterday too, which was ALSO disgusting) over their substance (which often times is a corporatist in disguise).

I've said in the past that many Republican candidates, male or female are disgusting to me. To me that almost goes without saying any more. I guess I was mainly trying to make the point that Tuesday stood out, because in most cases I would have expected a better array of notable Democratic wins by women to celebrate. Lincoln and Harman aren't it. And millionaires Fiorina and Whitmen trying to sell themselves as for "the little guy" and those that are laid off underlined my disgust yesterday, when Fiorina turns around and says in another interview that she'd lay more people off at HP again if she had the choice.
