Podcast: Transition Blues

November 19, 2010 · Filed Under Podcasts, The Governor · Comments Off 

For political junkies, it's a great scene out of a great flick. Newly elected (fictional) Senator Bill McKay, overwhelmed by it all at the end of the 1972 movie The Candidate, asks his top adviser: "What do we do now?"

Good question.

This week's Capital Notes Podcast looks at a similar challenge now faced by Governor-elect Jerry Brown (whose own life story seemed to track the fictional McKay, portrayed by Robert Redford).

Capitol Weekly's Anthony York and I discuss Brown's transition process to date, which is focused on the biggest problem of all: the looming $25.4 billion deficit faced by the state.
