Recall wrong answer

Posted: Thursday, October 02, 2003

Californians are faced with the most important election in recent memory: the decision on whether to remove and replace Gov. Gray Davis. ...

Davis is a leader of intellect but of no soul. He is a competent policy wonk who ... can't get legislators of his own Democratic Party to, as he once put it, ''implement my vision.'' For one thing, nobody knows what that vision is. ...

He has spent too much time avoiding issues: not dealing with the energy crisis and not ... cultivating legislative relationships that could have made him an effective governor.

Davis is, however, a moderate Democrat who has been in step with what most Californians want in environmental protection and personal freedoms. ... But what Davis will most be remembered for is relentless fund-raising from deep-pockets labor and corporate donors. ...

... So why not replace him? ... The alternatives as much as truth hurts in this nation-sized state that deserves better are not superior to Davis. In fact, they are potentially worse. ...
