Both parties face critical questions about the future. Are Republicans viable in statewide elections? Can they appeal to a changing electorate? Are there coming splits in the Democratic Party that could threaten its preeminence? Or are demographic changes likely to make Democrats even more dominant than they have been?

As the 8th largest economy in the world, and a major producer of technology, entertainment and agriculture, California is a major global player. Will California's international competitiveness be enhanced by linking various parts of the state with HSR? Given the high cost of HSR and the current federal retreat from funding, is this project a viable option for the state? Under what circumstances would the private sector invest in HSR development in California? How could the politics of localism be managed to create a system that works financially?
