Cali Bi-Partisan Politics

Schwarzenegger, Villaraigosa Forge an Unlikely Partnership
/The two politicians find common ground in a mutually beneficial relationship that could pay off at the polls...

/"We genuinely get along," Villaraigosa said of Schwarzenegger during a break from a packed schedule of meetings with legislators. "He's been very supportive of my administration."

/Villaraigosa, who took office 10 months ago and is limited to two terms, faces reelection in 2009, a little more than a year before the 2010 gubernatorial election. Those closest to the mayor say his ambitions extend far beyond City Hall. Friends and colleagues alike wonder how high he may rise, even throwing around job titles in idle conversation: Gov. Villaraigosa? Sen. Villaraigosa? Cabinet member Villaraigosa?

"Everyone knows that Antonio has a bright future and is going to go somewhere else," said City Councilwoman Wendy Greuel. "The question is, where?"

Villaraigosa isn't telling, at least not yet. When asked if he wanted Schwarzenegger's job, he responded: "Who would want to be governor when you can be the mayor of Los Angeles? This is a great job."

I'm all for PRESIDENT VILLARAIGOSA.

Little bit ago, there was a protest at UCLA re: affirmative action, the same day as a LA Mayor's election debate. Villaraigosa was the only candidate to call for the students to be heard, and prevented their arrest which I found pretty damn cool.
