The politics of Whitmanopoly: e-Meg starts her gubernational campaign with $100 million+ (from e-bayCo, and G-sachs insider deals). Jerry Brown starts with under 1 million and some contributions from CA demos and unions. Life in the Mormonacracy.

I don't know a whit about Whitman's psychology, but her "qualifications" don't move me.
Huffy executives of computer and internet start-ups are riding a wave of technological change. That they should find themselves accidentally at the helm of a firm which by chance or feral predation is leading a pack, or exploiting a fresh opportunity (as e.Bay did) should be no cause for egotistical primping. Whitman did nothing original or innovative--she simply whipped her software and marketing people with a stout rope. That's not leadership, but opportunism and luck.
Her campaign rhetoric is more reactionary than Schwarzenegger's was when he stepped into the ring--she'll set California back another 20 years with her 1950's style brand of Reaganomics.
grazi for comment, CF.
I agree. The recent CEO-as politician craze seems about like saying whoever wins big gambling in Vegas or hits the Lotto deserves to be Governor (senator, congressperpon,etc). Rather pathetic (oligarchy really). E-Meg's G-sachs deals are fairly sleazy as well.
The site I linked to actually does not have the correct information re campaign cash of Whitman vs Jerry Brown. I don't love Brown, but he's spent under a million on his campaign. according to official reports, with a few million from unions and other groups--total under 7 mil . E-Meg's spent like about 120 mil--her own shekels. She may win--and yes it could be worse than Ahhnuld, especially for the middle class and poor.
Political terms don't really describe someone like Megzilla.
You need like a spiritual dimension, ese.
Whitman--una de las hijas de la Gran Puta.
