The Detroit News looks at the relationship between the Democratic governor of Michigan who may determine the fate of the Democratic mayor of Detroit:
DETROIT -- She is deliberate and judicious, a onetime actress with an Ivy League degree. He is bold and brash, a former college football player who takes issues by storm.
Gov. Jennifer Granholm and Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick couldn't be more different and haven't always gotten along. Now, the governor may control his political fate as she ponders a request by the City Council to oust the youngest mayor in Detroit history, who has been charged with misleading the council into approving an $8.4 million settlement to three police officers in the text-messaging scandal.
The two were groomed by Edward McNamara, the late Democratic power broker and former Wayne County executive. They never gelled. Differences widened over sought-after endorsements, bickering among staffs and disagreements over aid to Detroit. But in recent years, they've moved beyond bruised egos to establish a working relationship, advisers and those who know both say.
