Need proof that hairgel addict Gavin Newsom is, as the San Francisco Chronicle reports, setting up a run for Governor of California? Read the opinion piece he posted at Daily Kos last week advocating gay marriage. Newsom says it's too early to talk about any plans, but Chron investigative reporters put their union paychecks to use to uncover Newsom's behind-the-scenes groundwork. The pro-business Democrat diverges from Schwarzenegger Republicans on three issues: Legalized gay marriage, universal health care, and protection for illegal immigrants would — at least so far — be part of his platform. Throw in medical cough marijuana, Gav, and you'll sweep the Bay Area vote. (Photo by Mike Kepka / San Francisco Chronicle)
