    Feinstein thinks California still needs a Democrat who gets along with GOP

    It was her first morning event, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein already was running late. She was going to a South Bay wildlife refuge to give a speech that was billed as nonpolitical, but nothing an officeholder does in an election year is nonpolitical.

    So it was no surprise that Feinstein, who is being challenged from the left in November by a fellow Democrat, state Sen. Kevin de León, went straight to the pitch that has kept her in the Senate since 1992.

    The $177 million federal grant she pushed through for a 4-mile-long levee and wetlands restoration project at the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay Wildlife Refuge in Alviso came after more than 20 years of work and bipartisan negotiations, she said.

    “We can get all people together, Republicans and Democrats, to work across the aisle for something we believe in,” Feinstein told the crowd.

    But it’s a different political world than it was in the 1990s. With Donald Trump in the White House, Feinstein’s kind of deal making isn’t just out of favor — many Democrats view it as collaborating with the enemy.

    1. Oy. And at her age too. After 17 years of this shitshow.

    It ain't the things you don't know that hurts you, it's the things you know that ain't so.

    2. Remind me again why California is a beacon of hope and enlightenment and

    rilly rilly smart and rich and should choose the president for all of us? Sincerely, I don’t see that at all.

    • *Obligatory disclaimer - when I say "Democratic Party" I mean the DNC - the Clintons and the un-elected people and the consultants and the lobbyists and the corporations who actually run things.  The people who work and vote and are registered as "D" are no more the actual party than Trekkies are Star Trek.   Extra credit - the Democratic Party gets to actually fuck up your life. When you vote for it.
    You think the only reason that people won't vote for a warmongering Third Way fracking-enabling cluster bomb throwing H-1B increasing lying pandering corporate and Wall Street shill who says she has no problem putting abortion rights on the table is because we are mad about Bernie?  Um, nope.

    3. The only way to "get along" with the GOP is to become one…

    We’ve had decades of those sort of Dems- how’s that working out?

    Trump is a fool who may yet blunder us into war; the Dems and the Deep State cabal would give us war by design.
