RICE AS GOVERNOR

Editor — California Democratic Party Chairman Art Torres says Condoleezza Rice wouldn’t make a good governor because “you need someone who understands the problems of working people in this state.”

Apparently Torres thinks an understanding of working people’s problems is attained through raising $26 million in campaign contributions from big corporations and special-interest groups.

Actually, Rice would probably be a provocative candidate with a more insightful and focused perspective on working people’s problems than Gov. Gray Davis.

If the same old broken record of class warfare is all that Democratic Party officials can muster against Rice, then she could be a formidable candidate against Davis in 2002.
