I think Feinstein has sufficient political experience, progressive and pragmatic policies, mental toughness, charisma, candidness and sensitivity to impress and win over Southern California voters. It would be a nice change of pace to have a woman in the governor's office, which up to now has been an exclusive all-males' club.
Some criticize Feinstein because she has high-class tastes. But what's wrong with a governor who is sophisticated and has a degree of culture, especially since it doesn't prevent her from identifying with and helping minority groups?
