Consistently toe'd the middle ground? Certainly, half way between the far left and the so called "moderate" left...a liberal RINO. Whitman is not the conservative we need but we certainly do not need to dilute her by having to every work with Maldonado (or deal with his decisions when returning from out of state official business).

We plan to vote for the candidate that investigates the shenagins of UC Berkeley Chancellor Birgeneau. When UC Berkeley announced its elimination of baseball, men’s and women’s gymnastics, and women’s lacrosse teams and its defunding of the national-champion men’s rugby team, the chancellor sighed,“Sorry, but this was necessary!”
But was it? Yes, the university is in dire financial straits. Yet $3 million was somehow found to pay the Bain consulting firm to uncover waste and inefficiencies in UC Berkeley, despite the fact that a prominent East Coast university was doing the same thing without consultants.
Essentially, the process requires collecting and analyzing information from faculty and staff. Apparently, senior administrators at UC Berkeley believe that the faculty and staff of their world-class university lack the cognitive ability, integrity, and motivation to identify millions in savings. If consultants are necessary, the reason is clear: the chancellor, provost, and president have lost credibility with the people who provided the information to the consultants. Chancellor Robert J Birgeneau has reigned for eight years, during which time the inefficiencies proliferated. Even as Bain’s recommendations are implemented (“They told me to do it”, Birgeneau), credibility and trust problems remain.
Bain is interviewing faculty, staff, senior management and the academic senate leaders for $150 million in inefficiencies, most of which could have been found internally. One easy-to-identify problem, for example, was wasteful procurement practices such as failing to secure bulk discounts on printers. But Birgeneau apparently has no concept of savings: even in procuring a consulting firm, he failed to receive proposals from other firms.

Students, staff, faculty, and California legislators are the victims of his incompetence. Now that sports teams are feeling the pinch, perhaps the California Alumni Association, benefactors and donators, and the UC Board of Regents will demand to know why Birgeneau is raking in $500,000 a year despite the abdication of his responsibilities.

The author, who has 35 years’ consulting experience, has taught at University of California Berkeley, where he was able to observe the culture and the way the senior management operates.

make your vote count on the most critical election day our nation has ever faced and choose two canidates who have the REALEST chance of winning and support the one who supports your views. Unions are SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS!!!!!!!!!! Anyone backed by AFL-CIO, SEIU, ACORN, TIDES FOUNDATION, etc (1000's more) want and support higher taxes and more regulation. Anyone supported by L.A. times, Huffington Post, N.Y. Times, and Washington Post are also in bed with the special interest groups!!!!

Newsom is just the self aggrandizing show boat for Calif. "All Hat and no Cattle" so to speak. All "form and no substance"

Wallowing in unearned self esteem, he represents today's slicker, far sicker, more unless incarnation of the voters in what remains of our broken mess of a State

Abel M. isn't much better but HE is the lesser of the two evils.
