THE MORNING AFTER THE MORNING AFTER

I was on deadline yesterday, so by now everyone knows that the SF election was the most exciting in years, and that Dem favorite Gavin Newsom won. But both sides are declaring victory. The Dems get a 36 year-old glamour-boy (Clinton II, anyone) with a foxy wife in a key city for the fight against Bush next year, and the progressives get the moral victory of an expanded power base. Newsom most likely will have to deal closely with the left in the years to come. The left needs to remain mobilized because many of their supe seats come up soon, and that may play to their advantage in the next year. Props finally to Kamala Harris, the first African American to become DA. She's a progressive. Where she'll stand in the ongoing police scandals remains to be seen.

Exit polls show interesting results:

*70+% of under-35 voters went to Gonzalez.
*Black turnout was low.
*Asian/Pacific Islander voting split between the conservative westside and the progressive inner-city.

I didn't see any word regarding Latinos, but it's probably safe to say looking at the district data that Latinos went to Gonzalez.
