Or another way of looking at it, she (Fiorina) is trying to distance herself from her party and hope she gets a few more crossover voters.

Any politician will say whatever it takes to get elected. Fiorina will say whatever it takes to become Senator, Boxer will say whatever it takes to keep the job.

I think I'll vote for Fiorina anyway, just because I hate Boxer. If Fiorina knows what's good she'll shut up and not say anything to annoy people like me, people who want to send a message to Obama and the Democrats that they're ruining our country, ruining our state, and we're fed up. To be fair, the Republicans are doing their best to ruin things too. It's just that in the last couple years the Democrats have been better at ruining things because they're the party in power. If we had a Republican president and Congress I'd probably be voting Democrat.

Congratulations! Although this is nothing new. Politicians count on the crossovers described in your last statement every two or four years. It's usually what their candidacies are based on. Ya haven't noticed? It's a very headache inducing cycle.

You should put an option for "Neither" because both are against Prop 19 and that's bad news to me, means they want to attack citizens, invade privacy, push morals on people. No. It's not the pot, it's the principle. We need someone progressive in office. Meg is buying the governorship with no experience in politics at all. I stand against homosexual marriages, but weed? Come on let's create some jobs here, our unemployment rate is 13%. Imagine all those warehouse/farm worker jobs, the dispensary jobs, small businesses, etc that can be crreated from a regulated cannabis industry. Even computer software guys can engineer PoS terminals for the industry, weed science devices, etc.

It's looking more and more like VEL CONWAY for my vote. Unlikely she will get elected, but at least Brown and Twitman aren't getting mine.

wow, "the ME generation" at work. Can you explain how legalizing Pot will create jobs? BTW, I don't really care one way or the other about the legalization of pot, I am just not quite sure where your ideas are coming from.

I wonder how people would react or what they would say if they met either one.

It would be like when they legalized alcohol after Prohibition. People would have to grow it, pick it, package it, sell it, etc. People who don't buy it now (because it's illegal) would buy it if it were legal. (I'm one of those people.)

Jerry Brown's newest ad, "Echo", is fantastic!

Kudos to whoever put it together. It's really brilliant political advertising.

"We tried that and it didn't work"?

No we didn't. The Democrat legislature stymed Arnie's every move. What is Arnie saying that is wriong? You just think Arnie has a bad image right now so whatever he says must be wrong. He has been an ineffective governor because of the Democrat majority in Sac. But better an ineffective Republican than another situation where the chief executive (BO) and the legislature are both left wing radicals.

Yeah. We're so much better off than we were 8 years ago... </sarcasm>
