Schwarzenegger backlash, critical mass achieved

Posted by Bob Brigham

Tonight was a turning point in California politics. The gubernatorial race is more than competitive, I'd now call it leaning Democratic.

Tonight, the people who actually run California, the teachers, the nurses, the firefighters, the citizens joined together with a united message that the Governator is hurting the people.

Living in San Francisco, one sees a great deal of protests. But the crowd tonight was not the people I marched with all night when Bush started the war. Tonight's crowd wasn't radicals, but radicalized opinion leaders. Imagine your second grade teacher, face strained while shouting, "Shame" and you'll know tonight's story.

...more to come.
