Hopenchange flops in...California?

Sure, lots of attention has been paid to the gubernatorial races in New Jersey and Virginia and the special election in NY-23, but on Friday evening, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom dropped out of the race to become the next governor of my state.

Does any of this stuff sound familiar?

He just basically cribbed the whole Obama playbook there. Universal health care? Check. Creating "green jobs" to save the economy? Gotcha. All that's missing is a Shep Fairey painting and a "YES WE CAN!" chant (though Barack might just sue him over that sort of thing).

Yeah, the guy's been through a sex scandal and rehab recently, but if you can't gain any traction by borrowing Obama's agenda here in one of the bluest of states, what does that say?
