GOP spin on Schwarzenegger
Heard on KQED Forum this morning: Arnold Schwarzenegger would never have been elected in a traditional election. He is in favor of gun control, abortion rights, and gay rights. He would certainly lose in a Republican primary where only the party faithful vote. And so he would never even get on the ballot of a general election. The lesson here for the Republican Party is that a more centrist candidate is far more electable than a Republican ideologue like McClintock.
