California Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown's decision to throw the weight of his office behind same-sex marriage has sparked debate over whether his arguments will actually do more harm than good for those hoping to overturn the initiative. Brown's request that the California Supreme Court overturn the state's ban on same-sex marriage -- arguing that it undermines fundamental liberties -- has been widely hailed as a victory in the fight for gay rights.

Shortly after James Buchanan, a courtly bachelor, moved into the White House in 1857, hiscritics began wondering if the treachery in his Administration was caused by his unmarried state. "Cain was a bachelor, and so was Judas Iscariot!" one newspaper warned. Buchanan left office as one of the least popular Presidents in American history, and the "experiment to elect a bachelor" was deemed a failure, with the newspaper noting: "For being freed from the cares of domestic life . . .

Bill Clinton called on former California Gov. Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown Jr. on Saturday to publicly release his tax returns, but the attempt to embarrass his rival for the Democratic presidential nomination was muted after aides acknowledged that the Arkansas governor had not released any of his own returns since declaring his candidacy. Brown, responding to Clinton's challenge, declared that his own tax records were already "out there."

On Day One of Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown Jr.'s political rebirth, he introduced a new word: Tangibilitize . What it means, he explained as groggy Democrats scratched their heads at an early breakfast here Sunday, is making grass-roots political activity tangible by infusing it with the kind of big money usually spent on television ads and high-powered consultants.

For more than 30 years of Jerry Brown's adventurous political life, the stylish, bald Frenchman with the designer tattoos and Zen haiku banter was Brown's soul mate and sounding board. People compared the relationship of Brown and Jacques Barzaghi to Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, the visionary knight and his faithful sidekick. To others, it was more like Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady, the bohemian buddies from Kerouac's classic novel "On the Road."

A judge Tuesday rejected a request by Republican activists for a preelection hearing on their bid to bar Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown from becoming attorney general if the Democrat wins Nov. 7. Brown supporters declared victory and predicted that the lawsuit, which they called a "political stunt," would evaporate after his election day showdown with state Sen. Chuck Poochigian (R-Fresno).

State Sen. Chuck Poochigian's favorite breakfast food is oatmeal, and it figures. Porridge fits his persona: wholesome but unexciting. "I sprinkle on a lot of cinnamon," he said, digging into a bowl one recent morning. The Fresno Republican, who grew up on a San Joaquin Valley raisin and fruit farm, seems miscast these days as a relentless attack-dog politician. That's because he's a genuinely nice guy -- courtly, congenial and considerate.

A former governor is trying to make his way back here to take a lesser job. And it's looking like he'll succeed. The question is: Why does he want to? But, then again, Jerry Brown always has been unconventional. That's his public appeal. The current Oakland mayor is running ahead of state Sen. Chuck Poochigian (R-Fresno) by a landslide distance, based on polls, in a nasty, little-noticed race for California attorney general.

This city's mayor doesn't dwell on his previous incarnations. Never mind the training to become a Jesuit priest, the gubernatorial romance with singer Linda Ronstadt or those stints with Mother Teresa and Buddhist monks. As the indefatigable Jerry Brown embarks on yet another quest for statewide office, he's brushing by his storied past as California's rock 'n' roll governor. Brown's focus heading into the June 6 primary for attorney general is on cops and capitalism.

Los Angeles City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo denigrated the record and character of Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown on Friday in their first face-to-face encounter in the race for the Democratic nomination for attorney general. Delgadillo, who has far less name recognition and experience than the widely known Brown, has pulled no punches in his effort to set himself apart in the short stretch that remains before the June 6 primary.

Feisty and unconcerned about being a party "spoiler," Democratic presidential candidate Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown Jr. on Friday criticized his rival, Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, for playing golf at a whites-only country club. "I think it's symbolic of what we're dealing with here," the former California governor told reporters. "It underscores the choice before the party: Are we going to be moving into the future or are we just bringing back the good ol' boys of yesteryear."
