In case anybody forgot, Bill Bradley reminds us in his LA Weekly column out today that he can still get the Governor-elect on the phone. Bradley insists that the bipartisan nature of the Schwarzenegger transition team is not window dressing. [Update: Bradley suggests I take another read, and he's right. His main conclusion on the transition team is it is a "very well dressed window," made up mostly of insiders. But bipartisan.] In particular, he says Democrat Bob Hertzberg, the former Assembly Speaker from the Valley, is an active member. As I've said all along, it will be interesting to see whether Arnold really does choose to mix parties -- in a substantial way -- in his Administration. And if he does, what the Republicans will think about that.
Dan Weintraub continues to stay all over the transition, including yesterday's news that Schwarzenegger's transition chief, David Dreier, slipped away to make nice with Tom McClintock.
