Mayor Newsom is the best candidate in the Democratic Party to transform the enthusiasm for Barack Obama’s presidency, and the drive to overturn Proposition 8, into a lasting political force for progressive politics in California.
I prefer Newsom for governor for a lot of reasons. For the most part, my general view is that Newsom’s imaginative approach to policy will allow him to succeed in solving problems facing California, even where the politics of the past have consistently failed.
If you take the time to read the post in full, you will find allusions to the tactics of the Obama campaign mostly. There is scant mention of the solutions that the mayor will bring to Sacramento. As many of us know having supported and volunteered for Obama, the campaign was about more than “how to win”, it was really about “what” to do when we won. And we are doing it.
Until we get specific answers on the “why you want to be governor and what you intend to do” from all candidates, CCWC will continue to search for a candidate who can answer these questons. We know the “how”. Hell, even the republicans are figuring that out.
Mr. Parent, do you know what candidate Newsom is going to do to rescue and rebuild the middle class of California? CCWC members would like to know the answer to that, more than how many tweets are fluttering in cyberspace.
