The widely anticipated turn to the right by the newly aligned California Supreme Court emerged in strikingly clear form in a range of decisions issued during 1988. In the past, under a liberal majority led by former Chief Justice Rose Elizabeth Bird, business, insurers and law enforcement repeatedly suffered defeat. But last year, under a more conservative court led by Chief Justice Malcolm M. Lucas, yesterday's losers became today's consistent winners.

Democratic attorney Wylie A. Aitken and Republican Superior Court Judge Anthony J. Rackauckas Jr. wouldn't appear to be natural allies. An activist Democrat, Aitken is one of the architects of the stunning election defeat last year of longtime GOP Rep. Robert K. Dornan. Rackauckas took a leave of absence from the district attorney's office in 1986 to work toward recalling then-Chief Justice Elizabeth "Rose" Bird, a Democratic appointee ultimately removed from office.

The San Fernando Valley promises to be the great battleground of this spring's mayoral election. With at least 45% of the electorate, the Valley contains enough voters to swing the contest. And as a commercial and manufacturing center, it has enough businesses to finance the winner's campaign. Strategists are trying to figure out how to capture the huge basin, surrounded by those mighty mountain ranges, the Santa Monica, the Santa Susana and the San Gabriel.

Since the June primary, Republican Pete Wilson has been throwing political spaghetti against the wall in search of an issue that sticks. He tried to embarrass Democrat Dianne Feinstein by recalling her support for Elizabeth Rose Bird in 1986. Next, he criticized the former San Francisco mayor for not signing the ballot argument for his "Speedy Trial" initiative. Then, he chastised her for running the "Hillside Strangler" ad during her primary campaign against Atty. Gen. John K. Van de Kamp.
