Dem AG Voted For Arnold

You don't think anyone would hold this against Bill Lockyer in a future campaign for Governor as a Democrat do you? Sacramento Bee blogger Daniel Weintraub has the story. Here's an excerpt:

(Lockyer) said he opposed the recall but chose Schwarzenegger in the replacement election because he stood for "hope, change, reform, opportunity, upbeat problem solving." He added, "I want that. I'm tired of transactional, cynical, dealmaking politics."....

...In comments to reporters after his speech, Lockyer had this to say about why he didn't vote for his fellow Democrat: "You know the people in your profession really well. You know who works hard and who doesn't. You know who is honest and who isn't. Cops know that about cops. Doctors know that about doctors. I know that about politicians. The common thing to all these professions is none of them say it. That's all I'm going to say."
