SANCHEZ FOR GOVERNOR!!!!
There was a great op-ed piece from Loretta Sanchez in today’s LA Times. (Forgive me if I’m overlinking the LA Times. I read it on my lunch break every day.) Sanchez called for Diane Feinstein to enter the race for governor.
Sure, that’d be great. Feinstein is smart, well-liked and, in the event the recall goes through, would almost definitely win the ballot to replace Gray Davis. But she’s got a pretty sweet job already — why jeopardize that by stepping into Davis’ mess in Sacramento and making herself the target of nutjobs like Darrell Issa? (Have I mentioned I really, really, really, really, really don’t like Darrel Issa? Really.)
Which got me to thinking… isn’t there another smart, well-liked California Democrat who’s maybe a little earlier in her political career and who may be ready to make the leap to statewide office?
Hmmm… I can think of someone…
