Gavin and Kamala: Does something have to give?

Sunday, May 8, 2011

image Kamala Harris and Gavin Newsom, in no particular order, get ordained as top “up-and-comers” among California Democrats in today’s Los Angeles Times. No big surprise there.

Add duo: For locals, the most interesting question to ponder is the guessing game among Harris and Newsom watchers as to how the two ambitious pols really view each other. An excerpt:

"It's a little bit like a sibling rivalry," Democratic consultant Steve Maviglio said. "They both are cut from the same cloth; they have the same base of supporters in many ways.... It's difficult for one to break out from the other, because they are both well-respected and have the attraction that Democrats are hungry for as we look at the future."

Others say the rivalry is more jugular.

"They're like a couple of cats circling each other in an alley," said a Democratic strategist who knows both politicians and insisted on anonymity to avoid alienating either one.
