The California legislature is trying to move the presidential primary in the state from June 3 to February 5, 2008. That ballot will have two propositions. The first is from Arnie Schwartzenegger and concerns redistricting; presumably it's similar to his earlier proposal.
The second would extend term limits for our wonderful incumbents and would do so before a March 2008 deadline, thus allowing people such as Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata and Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez to continue their reigns.
Essentially, California would have no real elections over the next four years, because we would have the same people running in the same districts where there is no competition.
UPDATE: For some unknown reason, I've thrice misspelled his name. It's Don Perata.
