So who's voting for Angelides for Gov in 06?
His main opponent is Lockyer who backed Arnold and seems to agree a lot with Arnold. Angelides was the only one in the atate executive branch who did not sell us out on Props 57 and 58.

1. I like Phil Angelides
I would have much preferred him in the running rather than Bustamante...

2. Lockyer did not publicly support Schwarzenegger druing the campaign
And the two aren't exactly buddy-buddy:

Schwarzenegger angered by attorney general's remarks


SACRAMENTO (AP) Gov.-elect Arnold Schwarzenegger will hire a private investigator to look into allegations that he groped women, but he may keep the results from the state attorney general, a spokesman said Thursday.

Schwarzenegger's reluctance to turn over the results of the investigation stem from remarks Attorney General Bill Lockyer made earlier Thursday. The Democrat said he advised Schwarzenegger that the misconduct allegations "are not going to go away" and he should cooperate with an independent investigation.

Schwarzenegger spokesman Rob Stutzman said those statements violated attorney-client privilege and have forced Schwarzenegger to reconsider whether he would provide any information to Lockyer.

"In regard to a review of allegations that surfaced late in the campaign, the governor-elect had already decided to engage a well-respected investigative firm to look into the allegations," Stutzman said. "He had intended to instruct the investigators to turn over the final results of that investigation to the attorney general; he will now reconsider that option."

5. Lockyer Was Disloyal With His Vote, and Stupid Enough to Admit It
Edited on Tue May-25-04 03:41 PM by DoveTurnedHawk
Either that, or he was deliberately trying to pander -- via disloyalty to a fellow Democrat -- to the Arnold Republicans. Either way, I find his behavior despicable, and I will work my hardest to see that he doesn't make it out of the Democratic primary.

Additionally, at the state convention, he addressed the Women's Caucus. When some of them hissed, he asked the crowd, "My, are we feeling cranky today?"

FUCK THAT GUY.

DTH

8. I didn't support him either.
I don't want these guys from the '80s coming back around. I didn't support March Fong Eu in her bid either--luckily, we got Kevin Shelley. Jerry Brown, a total opportunist, now wants to by attorney general--no way!
