Anyone wonder if U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein has the same feeling expressed by Gov. Jerry Brown about a presidential run–if she were a decade or so younger would she consider running for president? I pondered this when in introducing Feinstein to a joint session of the World Affairs Council and Town Hall Los Angeles Wednesday night, billionaire Eli Broad listed many firsts Feinstein accomplished in her long political career and then suggested she should be the first woman president.
The oldest serving United States Senator waved off the suggestion.
Feinstein spent time discussing her support for the Iran deal on nuclear power forged by the Obama Administration. She argued that there was no better deal to be had, that it was this deal or nothing. If no deal were confirmed, the senator suggested, in as little as three months there would likely be a military conflict.
