It's time for a change. The idea and hope for change was just a big dud. Since Ms. Boxer has aligned herself with the current administration and things have gotten "so much better", it's time for Harry, Nancy, and Barbara to exit stage left. We need real leaders not politicians.

James -

And those "real leaders" would be who?

I see no one on the political scene who is even remotely impressive.

And 280 was closed down in a progressive manner, using dozens of Highway Patrolmen, costing us a mint of money and inconvenience.

VIPs should either mingle with the masses or stay home.
