With no petitions and reform efforts to campaign for, it seems that the Schwarzenegger that our liberal state got behind just a few short years ago might be returning. He's writing smart stuff about Immigration policy. He's bucking the trend of his party (and the surfing Republican himself Dana Rohrabacher who is pictured goofily with him above) and acknowledging that global warming exists and that he wants to do something about it. He's even taking a different tact on the education reform debate by promoting vocational training.

LAist isn't ready to ignore his missteps as Governor just yet but it is interesting to note that while our President seems completely unaware about the issues facing our country, our Republican at least knows the issues facing our state and is, for now, willing to stand up for his own plans and choices.
