« White House fingerprints | | Feinstein declares she will not run »
August 6, 2003

Days of decision

As the recall circus competes for front page space with the Kobe circus, final decisions are expected today from Arnold Schwarzenegger, Arianna Huffington, and Darrell Issa, while Dick Riordan, Bill Simon and the entire Democratic Party continue to weigh their options. Meanwhile, a couple of more intriguing names to add to the list:

--Former Secretary of State March Fong Eu, 81, who says in the Sacramento Bee she will run if Feinstein does not.

--Actor Gary Coleman, whose name is being placed in nomination with the help of the East Bay Express, an alternative Oakland-based paper.

On a more serious note, the Chron reports that Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi could be the first big-name Dem to break ranks and decide to run. Though the paper cites no source for this speculation, it makes sense. Garamendi has great name ID and little to lose since he is termed out and not considered likely to be able to compete in a wide-open Democratic Primary in 2006.



At Crossroads, a panel of experts and the public debate the future of health care in California. We'd like you to join the conversation.
