In the driver's seat
|Dan Weintraub has a good column today about Sen. Don Perata's perspective on the infrastructure bond jostle.|
The analogy: Perata and Schwarzenegger are driving a car. Perata is behind the wheel. The governor is in the passenger seat. Sure, when they arrive at their destination, Schwarzenegger will jump out and the crowd will mob him. He's the celebrity.
"I go park the car," Perata says, sounding self-deprecating. Then he adds: "But I am driving the car."
It's worth a read.
