    Good riddance to one of California's most empty-headed politiciennes. I'd love to see either Darrell Issa or Tom Campbell replace her. Newsome, Harris, or Villaraigosa are all equally self-serving and would be just as ineffective .

    I'd say equal. Hard to be worse than Pelosi. Feinstein I don't mind. I bet we end up with Jane Harman in boxer's seat. That's an improvement.

    Forget it. She will be replaced by another liberal democrat. California is probably the bluest most democratic state in the US.

    Kamala Harris to run for Boxer seat

    Her announcement will come one day after Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, an ambitious figure seen as her chief rival, announced that he would not be running for Senate, positioning himself instead to run for governor in 2018. “I know that my head and my heart, my young family’s future, and our unfinished work all remain firmly in the State of California — not Washington D.C,” he said.
    Story Continued Below

    Former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villiaraogosa, meanwhile, has said he is “seriously considering” entering the campaign. Tom Steyer, a hedge fund billionaire and environmentalist, is also seen as interested.

    I find all the Pelosi-bashing hilarious.
    What's the problem, boys, sore that a girl regularly kicks your ass?
    Meantime, any of the named Ds would be fine. My picks: Harris, then Villaraigosa, then Newsom.
    Tom Campbell? Darrell ISSa? LOLOLOLOL You boys be smokin' crack.

    Sad to say, but she won't run. She has too nice a life right now and she's not going to ruin it.
