Even California's politicians like Texas
California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman:
"If your ratings go down, it's OK," [Whitman] said. And: "You will never be popular in a turnaround." Yet her model of an executive-turned-politician is New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg -- and he is popular. And in her mind, California needs a turnaround. After she had been at eBay a few years, Whitman said, the executive staff began to wonder: If we had to start eBay all over again, would we do it in California?
Which state would you pick? I asked. She answered, "Probably Texas."
