What’s Up With Ueberroth?


I’ve been assuming that the real conservatives in the California race are Bill Simon and Tom McClintock (yes, I know Arnold has an enormous lead, but I’m trying to figure out which candidate to give my heart to if–when?–Arnold stumbles) but a couple of readers have told me I ought to take a good look at Ueberroth. So what’s up with him? Why does he call himself a “moderate?” Is it just the same-old, same-old–in other words, the old “I’m fiscally conservative but socially liberal” saw? Or is Ueberroth more conservative than that?
