With general consensus being that our own little local election is essentially over, LA went national this weekend with the California Democratic Party Convention. The biggest democratic star not named Clinton -- Party Chair Howard Dean -- was everywhere to mixed reviews. The Angelino tells us very little about what Arianna Huffington said but we do know this: democratic faithful find the left-leaning independent sexy.

Our current favorite Dem, however, is California Senator Barbara Boxer who spent her weekend in town on USC's Campus and on HBO talking with Bill Maher. Her 'SC chat was about her Jewish heritage and the problems for cultural and social minorities in America's current climate while she spent her brief airtime on Real Time debating Maher on what types of voters democrats should be courting and how.
