The Associated Press lays out the options for the Democratic Party in the 2010 California gubernatorial election:
SACRAMENTO - Charismatic and politically bold, both San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa seem like naturals to help Democrats reclaim the governor's office in 2010.
But there's a formidable obstacle for the next generation eyeing the job: Former two-term governor and current Attorney General Jerry Brown.
The headline on this piece on the San Diego Union-Tribune's Web site is "Calif. governor's race: youth or experience?" That's actually a bit misleading. Believe it or not, Villaraigosa is 55, making him 15 years older than Newsom and 15 years younger than Brown.
