ANOTHER WIN FOR ARNOLD….I hate to say this, but one of the big winners last night was none other than the Governator. He campaigned for several controversial ballot measures here in California, and it looks like they’ve all gone his way. What’s more, the one place he campaigned with President Bush was in Ohio, which turned out to be the key battleground everyone thought it would be. Was his last-minute appearance in Columbus worth an extra hundred thousand votes? No one can say for sure, but it sure didn’t hurt.
Bottom line: we can expect Arnold to be even more insufferable than ever. Of course, whether that will help him with the concrete problem of dredging up an extra $7 billion to make up for last year’s budget tap dance remains to be seen….
