George Skelton has been at the LA Times a long time and
is a political commentator with a long tail resume.
Regardless to say he writes well.
He does have a California bias in terms of topics he
chooses, but then that is where he lives, doesn't he?
That perhaps is his assignment.
Some of his chosen topics: Proposition 2, Proposition
12, Proposition 11.
He celebrates Obama's election back in November by
declaring "The electorate has come a long way toward
eradicating religious and racial prejudices." And he
thrown in some nostalgic talk about JFK and how that
also was about breaking a barrier. The guy who mostly
talk local is also capable of the long view.
