Miami. Higher temps, virtually no rain. There's a reason so many snowbirds flock there in the winter...

Miami for the higher temps IMO. LA gets more rainfall but actually has less days of rain and slightly more sun than Miami, but it gets chilly in SoCal in winter.

SoCal has better winters than most of the country, and Miami gets those occasional cold snaps...but it's Miami here, no brainer. Most of the time, Miami in winter is like upper 70sF during the day and 60F at night, with SSTs in the low 70sF. SoCal may get a few warm days here and there in winter, but usually is breezy and rainy with temps in the 60sF in the day while nights dip into the 40sF.

Yes, it's really a thread, one you just responded to. I don't want to come off mean, but stop being a homer and read the question. The OP isn't asking which has better weather overall, but which of the two has better winter weather. And not everyone is going to agree.

I don't think you can discount Minneapolis for nice weather in the winter and even Seattle for that matter.

^^If you like 4 seasons/snow/cold weather.

But the person making this thread is asking for warm weather in winter, which is what most people would consider "nice". That's why popular winter break vacation hotspots include Hawaii, South Florida, the Caribbean, Phoenix, etc.
