Incoming freshmen Rep. Joseph Cao (R-LA) seems like a really good man. It was exciting to see a Vietnamese-American elected to congress, and Louisiana at that. However, after listening to these recent interviews with Think Progress here and here, I'm counting down the days until he leaves the the GOP. Rep. Cao represents Louisiana's 2nd congressional district covering nearly all of New Orleans and is 64.1% African American. The videos are worth watching because they show just how divergent from the rest of his caucus.
I’m back living in Oakland, CA, after three years in the land of “Minnesota Nice.”
My political leanings are independently progressive. I like to call myself a "California Independent," more fiscally conservative than most California Dems, which across the nation would be a mainline Democrat.
Now that I'm back with the bubble of the Bay Area, my goal is to take a bite out of politics and much more.
