In an interview today, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom made an important comment; one that should be taken very seriously by all California Democrats. If we are serious about voting Schwarzenegger out of office, he said, we must rally around Democratic candidate Phil Angelides now. He is right. Schwarzenegger must be sent out of office, and the only real way to do that is to get excited about supporting Angelides. I know he is not the most exciting candidate, but he is the only hope we have of getting California back on track. Although Schwarzenegger will try to run during this campaign as a moderate, make no mistake, he is truly a conservative. For example, not only did he veto a bill legalizing gay marriage, but he also promised to veto a law pending in the California legislature that would require school curriculum to include the contributions of gays and lesbians.
It's time to support pro-choice candidate Phil Angelides. The sooner he gets support from us liberals, the more likely Schwarzenegger will be defeated!
