This is one of those times when I have to stress that my views expressed here are mine and mine alone -- not those of my employer, which is strictly a nonpartisan/bipartisan nonprofit organization.
That said, this news story is likely to be seen by many to be reason enough not to vote for Meg Whitman. She doesn't appear to understand climate change, the new economy that's being built, or being a leader on a cutting-edge issue.
That's all too bad. Because I'd love to see a female California governor. As Governor Shwarzenegger noted earlier today when he introduced several of the state's leading public policy experts on the environment, California wouldn't be the leader it is today on the green economy without those three strong women.
Luckily, this state has plenty of talent to draw from for its governor's mansion.
