Arnold and the Republicans

The headline of my piece in the Daily Beast doesn't fit the story exactly. (Gov. Schwarzenegger didn't consider switching parties; he had a conversation with associates about dropping out of the GOP and becoming an independent, but quickly discarded the idea.) But I think the piece is a helpful primer on the history of the relationship between Schwarzenegger and the Republicans. Bottom line: Schwarzenegger has never been a partisan, and his relationship with the party establishment has never been close. And in California, legislative Republicans have been a serious obstacle to advancing his agenda.
