Maybe I would have a different opinion of Davis if I had to live in California, but I admire his political skills. How many other Democrats would have both the strategic insight and the sheer ruthlessness to take out the stongest GOP challenger in the primary? Not many these days!

I don't think Davis is that smart. He had a few National Dems explaining that bit of strategy to him. Which gets back to my point that Davis is too important to the '04 NATIONAL cycle to punish him for being a crooked little fucker in '02n Linse at June 14, 2002 12:47 AM

It may not be pretty, but it's politics on a scale that is bigger than the State of California. Davis knows it, and the DNC knows it. Knucklehead Welch should know it too, but my Jedi mind trick doesn't seem to be working on him...

Linse -- You know I'm not a very partisan person (registered independent most of my voting life), so the "look-at-the-scary-opponent" argument doesn't usually sway me ..... but more than anything, for my money Davis' crude and undemocratic ways have sunk to the level where my number-one priority is getting his paw out of the public till. I would like to believe that, had you been a Republican in 1972, you would have voted against Nixon....

I seriously can't believe I read "vote for the Dem crook." It's like when Carville compared working for Clinton to working for the mafia.
