Schwarzenegger Proves His Prowess, but Much Tougher Challenges Remain

Los Angeles Times

"People have stopped asking, 'How's Arnold doing?' They already know.

Republicans gush uncontrollably. Most Democrats smile in quiet admiration; some even join the chorus.

'He's exercising executive power to the max. That's the only way to get anything done around here,' proclaimed former Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, the Oakland mayor."

I don't think this portrayal is very accurate. I do think he's popular, but not with lawmakers. Being an outside enforcer doesn't make one many friends on the inside. But that's ok with me.
