Mimosas on the Terrace
At the former fishwrap of record...news analysis that comes to no conclusion. "To those more Machiavellian in nature — say, the entire political establishment — other possibilities came to mind: Villaraigosa was angling for an Obama administration job. He was declaring independence from party positions and powers in preparation for a future statewide run. Or he was trying to redefine his mayoralty in a way that could reap benefits down the line, were he to decide to exercise options one or two." I disagree. The Mayor currently appears to be a man whose compass is spinning wildly because he has squandered his mayoralty on his own self-absorbed magnetism, which throws off all other grounding or directional earth forces.
