Sure, but criticism from the far right gets her quaking like it was 1906 again.

The time for political bickering over health care reform needs to stop. I wonder how fast we would get a bill in place if all politicians were stripped of their party label and lobbying was made illegal. And one more thing.... take healthcare coverage away for all elected officials and their family and force them to find coverage of their own in the private market. I bet then they would get something done real quick! To learn more about what I think is the most successful part of health care reform in America read my blog article below. And it actually has a lot less to do with any politician and a lot more to do with YOU!

good points....but I disagree that lobbying needs to be made illegal. Lobbyists can be useful representatives of certain groups--take public interest lobbies, or unions. Instead, I would propose (as many have) that we simply take the money out of lobbying. Several good reforms have already been implemented, but lobbyists can still give politicians large campaign contributions. Take out that factor with publicly funded elections--or a mix of public funds and small private donations, as HR-1826 stipulates--and things are gonna change. We can still have lobbyists after that, only the politicians would no longer feel obliged to solely listen to the dominant, rich industries. Their constituency can then be heard for once!

So how much longer for Feinstein?

The only reason I, as a Californian, have voted for difi in the recent past is because the repubs put up a raging, against everything conservative who would be like Dan Lundgren or worse. If there were anyone running against her who had a brain, I might vote repub just to get rid of her, YIKES! I think that we all will be stuck without options unless a wonderful third party candidate appears.

Ha ha! Clearly she has not yet felt the editorial sting of KataVideo's latest missive on healthcare.

Soon, DiFi's overconfidence will be replaced with a contrite heart and a new desire to stand up for her constituents. (oh please watch my video).

Feinstein really does not give a whit about us.

Her husband is a military contractor.

So she has big bucks and will never suffer.

We need a Senator of the people.

She will be voted out next term if we have a good candidate to run against her.

That should be our cause. We are wasting our breath on her here.

It is all about the vote.

Vote her out.

Have you ever seen her mansion up on that hill in San Francisco? Holy crap!
10:22 PM on 06/29/2009
One of six or seven she owns...
08:56 PM on 06/29/2009
Well guess what, are votes will move you out of office. P.S. I think she looks like the lady on the cake mix box, that is Betty Crooker.

Were wasting our money for ads attacking her. Better to waste it there than spend it on making sure we get more Democratic Seats in the Senate. They say that if we could just get 125 Democratic seats they might be able to deliver a compromise bill on health care with some triggers. Oh and maybe a farmer's market insurance option, but that may be a stretch. If you can not bring in health care with a public option with no triggers then you are the wrong people to have in there.

Ever since the time of her vote for the U.S. invasion of Iraq and any time the name Dianne Feinstein is heard, the words:

"Bought and Paid For"

should immediately come to mind.

I've never embraced Feinstein completely... I did not vote for her, btw.

Nevertheless, while she did dismiss many of the far left and her words were divisive, I caution all of you with this:

Rush wants "his" party to remain "pure," meaning no moderates, no one who has progressive social ideals even if conservative. His rigidity (and those like him) are why the GOP is becoming a minority.

That's good news for those on the Left. But... if we bicker within our party to the point that we want no Blue Dogs and no moderately leaning lefties, then the GOP will win in 2012, 2016.

So while you may not like her, if you simply "oust" her because she's not liberal enough, you will be employing Rush's tactics and the Dems will ultimately lose and we'll be in this stalemate even longer.

I respectfully disagree.
This has been a problem for Dems for many years.
Trying to appease everyone.
When we do that, the policies we make wind up being so watered down, they don't make any impactful change in a system that needs a major overhaul.
If Feinstein doesn't think the American public is good enough for the same health care we are paying for for her, she needs to be replaced with someone who does.
I'm tired of the fear card that things could get worse.
We need to push ahead to make things better.
For all.

There are those that actually believe certain people are not deserving of health care. If you cannot afford it, you don't deserve it. These people are usually covered by corporate or government care systems and are elitist in their view of humanity. They will sacrifice their neighbor's life to obtain a tax cut. These are the people that turned in their Jewish neighbors in Germany, Poland, Austria and France.

Losing her job would definitely move her. Come on Californians, this woman has lost her way. This isn't the first time she's gone over the bend.
