Think what you will of human behavior - but it is what it is. Give people something to vote for and they will… And nobody is talking “perfection.”

How'd that work out for Lt. Governor McClintock? Oh right.

However flawed the candidates, this election I voted straight ticket Republican. As demonstrated up thread, there are enough GOP registered voters to have won the day against Boxer, even Brown. They chose to stay home.

Keep backing people like Whitman and they'll continue to stay home. Stomp your feet all you want, it ain't gonna get them to vote for liberals. As to McClintock, are you forgetting that he was completely constrained by the governator trying to sell his big bang bonds? That would be the governator that gave McClintock's opponent Garamendi multiple positive platforms; the governator that stabbed McClintock in the back by constantly calling him "wrong" on his position regarding bonds?

Give a Tom McClintock or Chuck DeVore 1/10th the support that the state GOP gave to any of their "moderate" candidates in this election and we'd have winners. Instead, they will be meddling more in the primaries thanks to their fair-haired-treasonous-liberal-lapdog, Abel Maldonado. I hear they're gonna push Whitman to run against Feinstein. And I don't think we've seen the last of the Democrat that Rove recruited to run for SOS, either. If you expect conservatives to vote for these people just because they have an "R" by their name, you are sadly mistaken -- and you haven't taken to heart the election results for the past decade.

But, I'm sure that we'll have the moderates of the party running to be first in line to trash any conservative candidate. With the open primaries, folks like you will be here during the primary to tell us "conservatives are unelectable" and "we must vote for the democrat"... errrr moderate because "they are the only ones that can win."

BTW, McClintock (45%) did better than Meg Whitman (41%), despite her $150 million dollar boondoggle.
