Doris Matsui

Yesterday I helped vote Doris Matsui into the U.S. House of Representatives to replace her recently deceased husband Bob Matsui. I hope she does as fantastic a job as her husband did for the past 26 years, because Bob Matsui was one of the very few Democrats other than Senator Barbara Boxer whom I actually did really like and happily vote for even when there were Peace & Freedom Party candidates available to vote for instead. The Peace & Freedom Party candidate against Doris Matsui sent me a very nice letter calling to "impeach Bush and Cheney for high crimes and misdemeanors" and "withdraw our troops now" and institute a "good quality single payer health care system," which made me sad not to vote for him. But Bob Matsui was such a very good representative that I have to give Doris Matsui a chance to impress me just as much. She has that chance now, so I hope she lives up to it.
