Phil Angelides

In the June 6th Democratic Primary election for Governor of California, everyone who is anyone seems to be endorsing Phil Angelides for Governor. Steve Westly brags (on state letterhead -pdf), that he is a Democratic Leadership Council (DLC) politician (Republican wing of the Democratic Party). Yet damn near everyone other than Al From seems to be with Angelides, just take a look at his endorsements -- he is the candidate who will win and make us proud:
