Meg Whitman or Jerry Brown

Well, today is election day for california. I've heard both sides. But in all honestly i feel like we're left with the choice between voting for cat sh*t or dog sh*t. Both sides have their own political agendas and interests. Truth is, I feel like CA is in a hole so deep that it really doesn't matter who gets elected at this point. I don't see myself living in this state forever.
Please share your thoughts.

If Jerry Brown is elected you will be bailing California out with your federal tax dollars regardless of what state you move too. Brown will not address the union and sanctuary problems in your state.

It's more a question of who do you want Pete Wilson, or Jerry Brown.

Jerry Brown will win and Kalifornia voters will get exactly what they deserve. Too bad, it's a wonderful place--just too many Kalifornians.

Not only are they getting Jerry Brown again they decided to reelect Barbara Boxer too. At some point we should sell California to China to pay off our debt. That is one state I will never live in.

Even more telling:

"With 100 percent of the precincts reporting, deceased candidate, Democrat Jenny Oropeza, defeated Republican John Stammreich in the race for State Senate in the 28th district."

As President Obama often says, one political party doesn't have a monopoly on good ideas. But it just seems that as things get worse and worse in California, they - for some reason - keep going for those old, tired, "same" ideas.

I would rather have Jerry Brown, a tremendous attorney, with experience in politics, than some puppet being controlled by a former governor.

After an adult life of never voting, why is being a politician so attractive to her now?

I'm not from California, so my comments are that of an outsider.

I think its naive to say that Meg Whitman doesn't have the best interests of California in mind. For every political candidate there is a mix of ego and a desire to be the center of attention, but I think most also believe that they think they can do a better job than the next guy (or girl). As far as Pete Wilson, he didn't "run her campaign" he was one of the campaign chairman. There is an important distinction in that a campaign chairman is simply a figurehead that brings donors and fundraising contacts into the fold - and in the case of Pete Wilson - gave the Republican establishment a clear signal that Whitman is the real deal. After some of his comments on immigration earlier in the year, the campaign quickly took him out of the spotlight and minimized his role.

I think the problem is that when Jerry Brown was the Governor last time, he took a budget surplus and turned it into a deficit. He increased the strength of public sector unions which now have the state on the fiscal ropes. However, CA is so entrenched in special interests that I'm not sure any governor can dig them out. And its clear the people of California aren't ready for that sort of substantive change either.

On a side note about her voting record - I agree, that's pretty disturbing that she didn't vote until 2002. Actually, really disturbing. But - no one is perfect - especially not politicians!!
