This past Sunday I ran for re-election as a Delegate to the California Democratic Party. I was on the Progressive Slate, from the 42nd Assembly District which covers parts of LA and the San Fernando Valley.
Now comes the true test for the progressive movement. Will progressives who vehemently oppose Nancy Pelosi's failed Congressional leadership come forward to help Cindy Sheehan
challenge Pelosi for her seat in San Francisco's 8th Congressional District? I know I will.
Unlike men, women still are reluctant to put themselves forward as candidates without first climbing the political ladder, often from the bottom rung, and don't throw their hats into the ring unless asked to.
