Death penalty hold on hold

The push for a moratorium on California executions fell short in an Assembly committee today.

(Clinton+Bush)/2 = Schwarzenegger

The Chronicle reports as a done deal today what our buddy Bill Bradley was hearing last week: Bush strategist and former Democrat Matthew Dowd will run the governor's re-elect campaign. A Texas Democrat who once helped Bill Clinton get elected before falling in with Bush and Rove. Seems like a logical addition to the Schwarzenegger stew.

Transportation boom

I love the way the legislative analyst boils things down to their essence. This report on the new federal transportation bill says that California will get 40 percent more money for roads and transit than it did under the last program. I don't remember reading that in the press when the bill was passed and signed. Maybe it was there, but it didn't jump out at me. Combined with the now all-but-certain lockdown of the Prop. 42 money, that means transportation construction in California is headed for a mini-boom even before you consider the governor's bond proposals.
