It looks like Arnold's going to support state-funded stem cell research. Funny, there's another proposition on the ballot that would eliminate partisan primaries, so that the general electoin ballot would contain the names of only the top two candidates, regardless of party. And the governor supports that one, too.

Coincidence? Of course not. If there's an open primary, Arnold Schwarzenegger doesn't have to bother with the Republicans . . . he can be as liberal as he wants, without the fear that he could be denied his party's nomination.

Something's smelling rotten in Sacramento. And the stench, for once, isn't coming from the Legislature.

I think you may be overstating the case a bit. Arnold has always been a populist, and a fairly liberal republican. As a long time resident of California, my observation is that by most standards, a lot of California republicans are fairly liberal. Arnold is apparently going to Ohio to stump for GWB, so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for now. I remember his definition of Republican at the convention, and I don't think he is going to bolt the party.
