  •  He prolly thinks (11+ / 0-)

    he can a) spin off six chunks of the state, then b) find a buyer for each, with the pieces bringing in more that the whole.

    A Ma Cal / Baby Cals transformation, like AT&T.  No real value added, a lot of wasted energy, but the well-placed get still richer.

    •  He Knows Republicans Reward Him (0+ / 0-)

      This guy wouldn't be in this business if it didn't have guaranteed short term benefits to him. He knows that Republicans will do him favors now for just tilting at the windmill. And that whichever other wealthy and powerful people he's "bundling" into this plan to curry favor with Republicans now will also do him favors.

      It's like every other Republican fantasy crusade. Which also means it has a chance of succeeding, in the US system that Republicans have gamed at every turn.
