State Democrats kick off a three-day convention in downtown LA today. It won’t be so much of a party as some hard thinking by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Barbara Boxer and other democratic thought leaders in caucus and committee meetings about which statewide candidates to endorse in the June primary and what voting positions to take on the June ballot measures. By the end of the weekend, the party should emerge with a platform for the November elections and their best-laid plans to avoid getting pummeled by Republicans.

Guest:

Carla Marinucci, political writer for the San Francisco Chronicle
