It may have been just a blip on the radar screen, but for one brief shining moment last weekend, "Larry Who?" out-sparkled "Governor Moonbeam" in the rapidly shifting political constellation over New Hampshire. In two consecutive polls, former Irvine Mayor Larry Agran, waging a long-shot campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, bested fellow Californian and former Gov. Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown Jr. by a single percentage point.

Former California Gov. Edmund G. "Jerry" Brown, who made reinvention a personal art form, unveiled his newest incarnation Tuesday: big-time candidate for small-time office. Leaping headlong to the top of a crowded field, the two-term governor and thrice-failed presidential hopeful announced a bid for Oakland mayor standing by the gourmet kitchen of his sleek $2-million live-work space near the city's waterfront.

Given the twist-of-Zen politics Jerry Brown practices, maybe it made sense that he dropped out of the running for the U. S. Senate before he ever formally entered the race. But as California's ranking political dervish set off for the presidency without comment Tuesday, it was left to others to ponder the impact. Brown's departure, announced in a letter to his supporters, drew groans from state Republicans who had counted on him as the next best thing to the return of Michael S.

Former California Governor Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown, Jr. will emerge from his reclusion to be a television commentator during Pope John Paul II's visit to San Francisco, ABC-owned KGO-TV Channel 7 announced this week. Brown was selected along with several religious experts because he was once a Catholic seminarian, news director Harry Fuller said. The one-time presidential candidate will be paid for his work, but Fuller would not say how much.

Supporters of Mayor-elect Edmund G. "Jerry" Brown Jr. collected more than 52,000 signatures--nearly twice as many as needed--in an effort to put a strong-mayor proposal on the November ballot. On Thursday, Brown's supporters turned in the petition signatures, which must be verified by Alameda County election officials. Oakland's mayor currently serves as a member of the City Council, with the appointed city manager wielding much of the day-to-day authority.

PAC MAN: Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown Jr. has based his Democratic presidential campaign on attacking the influence of money on politics, but his own experience shows that big bucks don't always translate into support. . . . Brown set up a political action committee when he stepped down as California governor in 1983, and the next year it gave substantial sums to several Democrats. The biggest contribution--$10,000--went to the Senate campaign of Democrat Tom Harkin of Iowa.
