California Democrats pick Angelides

Last night, almost 70% of the California Democratic Party delegates voted to endorse Phil Angelides over his opponent Steve Westly in the campaign for governor. [Mercury News Story]

“I’m running for governor to make sure that every person in this great state — whatever the color of their skin, whatever language they speak, wherever they come from — will have the same opportunities to be successful that we all had,” the former eBay executive, Phil Westly said. “Will you join me? Will you join me?”

Will you?

One thing I hate in politics is when same-party opponents beat one another up in campaigns. Both Phil and Steve have the same goal: to defeat Schwarzenegger. If they beat each other up in the primary, the “winner” will emerge with a bruised public image.
