Feinstein in line to chair Senate Intel Committee
The Associated Press
Article Launched: 11/07/2008 1204 PM PST

WASHINGTON—California Senator Dianne Feinstein is in line to become the first female chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The opening was created Friday with the announcement that Senator Robert Byrd, the longest-serving senator in history, is stepping down from his post as chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee.

That makes way for a chairmanship shuffle in the Senate Democratic Caucus that will end up with Feinstein, a Democrat, relinquishing her gavel of the Senate Rules Committee in favor of the far more powerful Intelligence post, according to a former Hill aide who spoke on condition of anonymity because the deliberations were ongoing.

That could decrease the possibility of Feinstein running for California governor in 2010, something she's been considering.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I'd think Feinstein would do less damage as a governor than a senator.

Senators get national attention while governors typically don't.

I don't see her taking a step "back" on the political food chain.

She can do much more damage to us in Sac. by signing every anti-gun bill the legislature can put on her desk. In D.C. she's 1 of 100 and can be stopped.

Gov. of some fly over state might be a step back but gov. of CA is at worst a lateral move. Pete Wilson left the Senate to run for gov.

I know this has been brought up before but I just saw an interview with her and she is all set to run for Gov of CA. The consensus of the so called political experts was that she would easily win since she is so popular.

I believe she's been offered plum seats on various Senate committees.

At this point in her life I am not sure she wants the drama of being a governor.

Remember that AG Jerry Brown is likely to run for Gov too. :)

And as I've pointed out she has significant cross-party support in California from Republican businessmen in the Ag industry in the Central Valley. She's done a lot of good for the sector, making her more popular with farmers even than Arnold.

I think there is a significant risk here.

i rmemeber a few years ago when she was up for re-election her campaign ads were of her and how she saved the redwoods fro destruction...and that was it. I remember saying how nice it was to just state that and she could be re-elected.

dont get me wrong, redwoods are cool and all but to have a campaign ad saying how you defended them and not mention anything else was laughable. Whats more laughable is that she probably didnt need to run any ads and she still would have won because her attack ads had the other guy saying how he was opposed to a .50 cal ban...That and most people in this state are stupid.

The Dem Gov race potentially will have at least 3 heavy hitters.

Bill Lockyer
Jerry Brown
Diane Feinstein.

Bill Lockyer or Diane Feinstein would be a disaster for gun rights.

The Republicans right now have nobody.

I've alway thought being a Senator was higher up the political food chain the being a governor.

Am I wrong in thinking this?

Seems like being a Senator lets Feinstein meddle in things that effect the whole world, not just Cailfornia.

Senate Committees cover all kinds of stuff that you wouldn't get to control being governor of California.

I just don't see her taking that step "down".

Jerry Brown would be the better choice out of all of the Dems. His stance on crime and law and order is more strict than other Dems/libs. And I hear his position on firearms is not as kooky as his friends and colleagues.

Jezz, President Brown has a better ring to it nowadays. :(

This year as an exception. Governor is a great stepping stone to President.

But I saw in later post she is 75 years old? Obvious that won't happen then. She would be 83 when had her first shot at President.

So yeah jumping from Senate into Governor I would say is a downgrade.

That old liar said she was getting out of politics after Moscone & Milk were killed. She went on to be Mayor of SanFran for 8? 10? years. And all these years in the Senate. I can easily see her wanting to finish out her days closer to home, living in the luxury provided by the State and her husband's defense company earnings.

As for Brown, well -

Edmund Gerald "Jerry" Brown, Jr. (born April 7, 1938) is the current Attorney General and former governor of the State of California. Brown has had a lengthy political career spanning terms on the Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustees (1969-1971), as California Secretary of State (1971-1975), as Governor of California (1975-1983), as chair of the California Democratic Party (1989-1991), the Mayor of Oakland (1998-2006), and the Attorney General of California (2007-present). He unsuccessfully sought the Democratic nominations for president in 1976, 1980 and 1992, and was an unsuccessful Democratic nominee for the United States Senate in 1982. Since Brown's terms in office are not covered by term limits that came into effect in 1990, he is not barred from running for Governor again.

It's about time Jerry 'Moonbeam' Brown grows up and gets off the public dole.
40 years in political office is WAY too much. Not to ignore that he'll be 72 before he gets a crack at Governor again. Feinstein will be 78.

Is this seriously the best we can do? Keep re-re-re-re-re-electing these same people? No wonder legal citizens are emigrating at a greater rate than legal population growth.

Well, coupla things:

1. CA Republicans don't seem to have a winner in the stable, esp in
a challenging political environment for Republicans nationwide not just
in CA.

Steve Poizner? C'mon - that guy probably gets excited eating a new
flavor of oatmeal, and it shows. I think he'd be a Mitt Romney on guns.


2. AG JB appears to have a libertarian bent toward gunnies. We'd be far better off with JB
than Arnie in office. You'll note the Firearms Division has been downsized to a Bureau, Iggy is
gone, and Alison has a big rag stuffed in her mouth. And lower level minions were prevented
from supplying an antigun brief for CA in Heller v. DC...

Strawman arguments, counselor, I'm not advocating either Posner or Ahnold. I agree, the Republican party in CA is neutured / neuters. But that does not mean that I'll accept or be resigned to the likes of Jerry Brown or Feinstein holding further high office in CA. I don't think either one of them is fit to be dog catcher. Or even dog food.

/and just for your general fund of knowledge, the next time you try to prop up a strawman re me, I'm not a member of the Republican party.

Well he was third in the runoff, so he'd at least have some name recognition. But really, he's been next to invisible ever since. He's got the next two years to really stand up and be noticed, by put forward strong positions and condemnations of liberal positions. But frankly I don't expect much from him.
I think the state has already slid too far down the socialist ****ter, 'Yes on 8' notwithstanding.

I'd rather have her as a governor than give her oversight of the CIA, NSA, FBI, etc.

this past year the seahag has been busily trying to sneak amnesty provisions into almost every bill that passes through the senate. i think she would be our worst nightmare as governor. she has a large enough fan base of loyal zombies to walk away with it. gerry would probably be the least offensive. republicans, i thought they were all in camps here now. no one of any stature on that front.

FEINSTEIN FOR SUPREME COURT!

Dear President-elect Obama,

Congratulations on your recent victory.

I realize you are now sorting many things out but I would like to bring something to your attention.

It is highly likely that you will be appointing one or more Supreme Court justices during your tenure as President. I would like to recommend that you consider appointing Senator Feinstein to the Supreme Court.

Her intelligence, belief in the "living document" theory of constitutional interpretation, and long record of liberalism make her a perfect appointment.

Sincerely,

:)
