There is nothing easy about winning California's highest profile political job. But if you're a wannabe and you're facing an incumbent with rising job approval ratings and a $10 million warchest... is there hope?

Anthony York of the Los Angeles Times and I also take a look at a few other items from this week's statewide nonpartisan poll -- most notably, numbers that indicate a delicate balance ahead in the final month of this year's legislative session on the issue of hydraulic 'fracking.'
