Was listening to KCBS this morning and Willie Brown was on with Phil Matier. Willie said that most ex-Speakers tend to exit stage left shortly after, and with Gavin Newsom taking the job of Lieutenant Governor, there's a great job waiting for her in SF if she should want it. What do you think?

Apparently she's running for leader of the Dems again. I don't really think she'd want to be mayor, if she loses the leadership race she'll probably remain a representative or just retire, her husband is really wealthy.

Not likely. Why should she? She is more of a national rather than a local official. She is running again for House Minority leader. She'd pretty much have to start from scratch to focus on local issues.

Anyway, it's going to be interesting to see which of the Supervisors are manuevering to succeed Newsom.

Diane Feinstein was once the mayor of San Francisco. When Feinstein finally retires I bet Nancy Pelosi will be interested in being an U.S. senator from California. Maybe Nancy would like to run for governor when Jerry Brown retires in 2018?

Nancy only has experience creating debt, not eliminating it. Not a good choice at all!

Yeah you are right. It would be better for someone like the Texas governor to run in California! What's Texas' current debt? Try: $18 billion [$8 billion more in debt than California].

WRONG.

According the CA's official website, the 2010-2011 deficit is forecast at $19.9B. That is one fiscal year.

http://www.ebudget.ca.gov/pdf/Revise...troduction.pdf

The Texas deficit on the other hand is a two year number because the Texas budget is for two years. Our legislature meets every two years, not constantly.

Wanna bet who erases the budget first?

Perry of course would be a terrible fit for California for so many reasons. The culture fit is non-existant.

If she does, that'll put a big kink in Gavin Newsom's plans.
