California chaos a respite from dull Virginia politics?

This commentary in the Daily Press suggests that Virginians bore with the politics here can get their entertainment watching goings-on in California.

As I understand it, the big deal with Gray Davis was that he got re-elected then told everyone there was no money. In Virginia, since the governor cannot run for re-election, it is possible for the incumbent governor to minimize the bad facts about the budget to help elect a successor from his own party, who then can say he's not to blame for how bad things are. (Or so I've been told is what happened in 1989.)
