Lungren's claim that he will be a governor the people can trust has a
hollow ring to it.  How can we trust a man who used the full force of
the attorney general's office for the past two years opposing the
people's will about medical marijuana?

Lungren brags about an egotistical inability to compromise under any
circumstance, as though it is a virtue.  Such an attitude will mean
big trouble for California if Lungren is elected, because  the
governor's office will be constantly embroiled in Lungren's personal
political battles instead of taking care of important state business.
