I couldn’t give a crap about this, but it appears that Democrats in California are “coming out”…
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) – Attorney General Bill Lockyer, often mentioned as a possible Democratic candidate for California governor in 2006, said Saturday he voted for Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger in this month’s recall election.
“It was the first time I ever voted for a Republican in my life,” Lockyer said during a speech at the Institute for Governmental Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. “What Arnold Schwarzenegger represented for me was hope, optimism and change, and I want that.”And here is the line of the night:
After his speech, Lockyer also took a swipe at Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante, the only major Democrat who ran as a replacement for Davis if the governor were recalled.
Asked why he didn’t vote for his fellow Democrat, Lockyer said, “You know the people in your profession really well. You know who works hard and who doesn’t. Cops know that about cops. Doctors know that about doctors. I know that about politicians.” Meow!
