I haven't decided yet who I'm supporting in next year's California gubernatorial race, but praises to State Treasurer Phil Angelides for doing the right, honorable and necessary thing in blasting Arnold for vetoing the gay marriage equality bill passed by the California legislature. Angelides statement:
By vetoing the Civil Marriage and Religious Freedom Protection Act, Governor Schwarzenegger has come down on the wrong side of history. Governor Schwarzenegger had the chance to enter the pages of history with the likes of Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, and Lyndon B. Johnson; instead he has chosen to be listed alongside George Wallace and Strom Thurmond. Just as Wallace, Thurmond and many other segregationists came to regret their errors, I hope that Governor Schwarzenegger will come to change his views.

Is Phil running? I love the quote.

He's been running unofficially, then officially, since the beginning of the year, and probably has to be considered the Democratic frontrunner.
