Californians Want Arnold Back

Well, how did we get here? In the state with 43% of registered voters identifying as Democrat and 34% identifying as Republican, a wildly unpopular Republican president, and in the midst of a punishing backlash against Republican politicians nationwide, how did we land a Republican shoo-in governator? Dan Glaister of The Guardian has some answers.

Californians think it's cool to be bi:
"Part of the answer lies in the governor's much-vaunted bipartisanship, his professed keenness to work across party lines and do what is best for the state."
He's free of Bush's influence, he's got star power, AND he's humble:
"Trying to link me with George Bush is like trying to link me with an Oscar."
He's nearly royalty himself, but better:
Responding to his debate opponent's long-winded discussion of minutae, Arnold replied, "I feel a bit like I'm having dinner with Uncle Teddy at Thanksgiving."
Maybe it just comes down to the "wow" factor:
"...[Angelides] has the charisma of a biology teacher. In American politics, for good or bad, you have to have something going on."
Personally, I've had some pretty hot biology teachers.

Unfortunately these more compact designs have come at a great cost and have become far
more susceptible to any kind of a liquid spillage. 1: The $2,250 Swarovski-studded 32GB i - Pad,
5 Ridiculously Expensive Apple Gadgets You Won't Believe Are Real, and $20,000 Diamond Studded Apple IPad, the Most Expensive IPad Yet. It was a great investment and I found that it's better
to not sweat the small stuff.
