Every Democrat worth his statewide name recognition is contemplating a run for governor in 2010, when Arnold Schwarzenegger will be term-limited out. Right now, speculation holds that the likely field could be blown away by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, should she choose to run.
Dan Walters of the Sacramento Bee tries to deflate this boomlet, noting that Feinstein has toyed with the idea of running, but ultimately decided against, every time the job has come open since her narrow 1990 loss to Pete Wilson. He notes her age (77 in 2010) and tries to find reasons why she wouldn't want to do it (too expensive, too much exposure for her husband's business interests, too many rifts with the ideological left of her party).
