    California: Kamala Harris... Senator?

    California: Kamala Harris... Senator?

    I missed this. I usually keep up better with my former home, but I completely missed this. Someone please fill me in. Did Barbara Boxer simply decide to retire? I know she's getting up there in age.

    How did the election for an open seat play out? Was it close or contentious, or pretty much a done deal from the start?

    As a Senator I hated Boxer, but having watched Harris from a safe distance when she was in San Francisco I am no fan of hers, either.

    You know, it used to be when you bought a politician, that son of a bitch stayed bought.

    Boxer retired and Harris won 60% of the vote vs another D.
    No R's ran against them.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Trust me, any Democratic Woman who is strong and stands up to Republican Men ... is a threat.

    Boxer retired. Race was between two democrats. Not close. Harris won by a large margin.

    R's ran in the primary. California takes the two highest vote getters which happened to both be democrat.

    It's very difficult for the prejudiced to abandon their preconceived hatred in favor of real world facts.

    Democrats have been taught since birth by people they respect that there are groups of people that they must hate because they are de-humanized, hate filled thugs who are somehow making the world a less hospitable place.

    When real world facts run counter to preconceived notions, the real world facts are dismissed.

    I guess training methodologies and outcomes for prejudice are common. Doesn't matter if the target of the hatred is non-Democrats, non-Whites or non-Muslims.

    If something works, stick with it.

    It was a jungle primary, the two top vote getters of the primary face off in the general election.

    This year it happened to be two democrats in the top two
