    Re: Longtime Rep. Jane Harman to Quit Congress

    CA36 in the 90's was a competitive district, it was gerrymandered in 2000 with republican leaning palos verdes removed and a big slice of blue added from west of long beach and south of culver city...

    now that redistricting has been taken away from the assembly and turned over to an independent panel, ms harman's district may be reconfigured in a way less advantageous to her

    what's happening with ms harman is not unexpected in this state, and she may well not be the only one

    mr miller in martinez, mr thompson in napa-mendocino are others rumored to be considering retirement

    fyi

    Lol the head WWCF is not a private position. It was established by Congress and funded by the government and public donations. The government also appoints the people directing the institution. You have no idea what it is you're talking about do you? This is like calling being the head of Smithsonian a private position.

    more on what's really going on concerning ms harman:

    Redistricting, in particular, poses a serious threat to Blue Dogs, given that many hold marginal seats in states where Republicans unilaterally control the line-drawing.

    In North Carolina, for instance, Democratic Reps. Mike McIntyre and Heath Shuler are at risk. In Georgia, Rep. John Barrow is the most threatened Democrat in the state, and Rep. Sanford Bishop might not be far behind.

    Rep. Jim Cooper, D-Tenn., could see more conservative neighborhoods outside Nashville added to his district.

    Outside of the South, Reps. Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Leonard Boswell of Iowa, Jason Altmire of Pennsylvania, and Jim Matheson of Utah are all at risk of running in districts that are less favorable to them.

    Shuler, a member of the Blue Dog leadership, said on Morning Joe on Monday that “there has really been no communication whatsoever” between himself and Pelosi—a striking admission, given the seminal role that Blue Dogs have long played in caucus politics. But perhaps she’s just recognizing the new reality—that Blue Dogs might soon be an endangered species.

    while it is true that CA36 will not be redrawn by hands all republican, the district will be refashioned by fingers entirely different from those who drew it last

    fyi

    LOL....from your own source:

    Harman, is on most issues a liberal, having earned a 95 percent rating from the liberal group Americans for Democratic Action. On intelligence and defense issues she tends to be a moderate. For example, she was one of many Democrats who supported the Iraq War.[17] As a member of the Democratic Leadership Council, Harman has combined a moderate stance on economic, trade, and foreign policy issues with a more liberal stance on social issues. For instance, while voting with Republicans to restrict rules on personal bankruptcy, for lawsuit reform, and to abolish the estate tax — as well as on protecting those defense contractors with business interests in her congressional district — Harman voted against the ban on partial-birth abortions, lawsuits against gun manufacturers, the Defense of Marriage Act, and banning indecent broadcasting


    I lived in Harman's district for many years.....hardly what you would call a bluedog.

    You should maintain your own self-respect and refrain from commenting on issues that you obviously don't have a clue about.
