Ouch. From AP:
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. John Kerry campaigned on behalf of Phil Angelides for governor Monday morning in West Hollywood.
The Massachusetts Democrat spoke to a half-empty gym in West Hollywood.
About 75 people heard the former presidential candidate criticize California Republican politics without mentioning incumbent Arnold Schwarzenegger by name.
The Democrats have no one to blame but themselves for the mess in California. Ahnold looked utterly beatable a year ago, and the party went out and gave its full force and backing to a tax-and-spend technocrat who looks like Beaker from the Muppet movie. (Yeah, I'm talking to you Diane Fienstein and you Barbara Boxer).
Imagine for a second they'd gotten George Clooney to run. Then we'd have a race. And a packed Gym in West Hollywood, to be sure.
