Sunday Open Thread And Prediction Challenge

What office is Rocky Delgadillo running for now? He's clearly in the middle of a campaign for something, as he is emulating the endless-photo-op modus operandi of Mayor Villaraigosa. So give us your predictions now: what office, what year?

Other than that, consider this your soap box du jour.

Who cares? Rocky has done more about the gang problem then our midget mayor. Antonio has been a complete failure in this city.

Re "LAPD fiscal practices are called risky," March 20

It is ironic that L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa insists that residents back his plan to overhaul the Los Angeles Unified School District, yet he fails to see the blunders within the Police Department. The details of City Controller Laura Chick's audit are disheartening; it is clear that Villaraigosa should balance his own books before he gambles on the educational futures of our city's public school students.

Note to the City Council: Next time you raise our trash fees, do the audit first to see if the levy is indeed warranted.

He would make a good City Controller ...that is, if he were interested in giving this a try.

If he wants to go to the private sector, though, he will be able to make $$$$$$$.

according to this story villaraigosa will be our next governor if he wants it. the crosstabs in the poll suggest much of support comes from Los Angeles.

and when asked why? they cite his good work as mayor.

When it comes to Democrats in California, nobody beats Jerry Brown -- who, believe it or not, aces a number of oft-mentioned party contenders for the next governor's race in a new statewide poll.

We know it's early. But the poll of 400 registered Democratic voters, conducted by J. Moore Methods of Sacramento from March 8-18, shows the governor-turned-presidential contender-turned-Oakland mayor-turned-state attorney general would clock in at 31 percent if the 2010 primary were held today.

That far outpaces some of the party's supposed rising stars.

Brown's showing is almost twice that of his nearest rival, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who comes in at 17 percent. He's also well ahead of San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, at 12 percent.

Brown is also way out in front of some fellow old warhorses, such as last year's Democratic nominee, Phil Angelides (12 percent), Lt. Gov. John Garamendi (11 percent) and state schools Superintendent Jack O'Connell (2 percent).

Jerry's support registers virtually across the board. He's first among white Democrats as well as among Asian Americans and African Americans. He leads among those who describe themselves as conservatives, moderates and liberals, in Northern California and Southern California, and among environmentalists.

The only place Brown comes in second is among Latinos, half of whom go with Villaraigosa.

"It's not surprising," state Democratic Party Chairman Art Torres said of Brown's showing. "He has huge name ID. Look at his campaign for attorney general -- he really never had to do much."

As for the chances of the 68-year-old Brown actually running for governor? "That's not in my plans,'' he told us Friday.

Take Brown out of the race and toss in former state Sen. Jackie Speier, and the poll has Villaraigosa moving up to the top spot, with 29 percent. Newsom drops to fourth, with just 9 percent, tied with Speier and trailing Angelides and Garamendi.

When mainstream Media report on all the baggage Antonio has that our lazy ass local reporters failed to report he can kiss the governor post goodbye. Main stream loves getting out the dirt on politicians and we all know how much Antonio has in his closet.

Funny seeing AV and his boyfriend Fabian with the illegals. Such suckers, they support them but the hell with legal residents in this city.

The male politicians are a joke with their egos. Ricardo Alarcon needs to get rid of the ZORRO mustache and hair dye, so does Antonio with that sleazy greasy look and too white teeth. He still has bad breath no matter how many Listerine mints he takes.

Delgadilo should run against Cooley next time Cooley's up for re-election. Cooley's been a do-nothing DA and a drunk. If not that, then he should challenge our favorite midget.

Delgadillo IS running against Cooley.

He's already commissioned his first poll, and calls were being made last week -- for that specific matchup.
