Few people have worked harder than Joe Nunez to sabotage Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's political fortunes. A high-ranking teachers union official, he helped engineer the governor's embarrassing defeat in the special election last year. So to Republicans, it was nothing short of infuriating and confounding that Schwarzenegger would appoint Nunez to the state Board of Education. He handed a Democrat and avowed enemy one of the most prestigious patronage jobs in government.

The atmosphere has changed around the Capitol. The air is less polluted, especially between Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the school lobby. That bodes well for California's 6.3 million public elementary and high school students. Their campuses will be getting more money. And, presumably, they won't have to cover their ears while the grown-ups -- the governor and teachers union leaders -- call each other liars.

USC tailback Aaron Emanuel, who could face criminal charges stemming from an alleged attack Sunday on a female USC student, also may be prosecuted for allegedly assaulting another young woman last December. The Los Angeles County district attorney's office is reviewing a report of the earlier incident, in which Emanuel allegedly slapped another female USC student, to determine if charges will be filed, office spokesman Andy Reynolds said.

The California Teachers Assn., one of the state's most politically powerful unions, suffered a rare rebuke Thursday when Republican state senators blocked the confirmation of a union leader to another term on the state Board of Education. The Senate rejected Joe Nunez, the CTA's deputy executive director and a chief architect of public labor unions' successful campaign against Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's 2005 effort to upend Sacramento politics.

SACRAMENTO -- Grading teachers based on how much their students learn should be a no-brainer. In fact, state law for more than three decades has required that pupil progress be one of the factors in evaluating teachers. But, as it turns out, when someone actually does that -- measures teachers against their students' test scores -- it becomes highly contentious. It's also groundbreaking and revolutionary, a potentially long leap toward substantial reforms in California education.

In a Capitol where term limits mean that faces change often, state Sen. Ed Vincent has been one of the closest things to a constant. Passionate about horse racing -- the Hollywood Park track is in his district -- Vincent, a 72-year-old former Inglewood mayor and onetime Los Angeles Ram football player, has been a reliable Democratic vote since 1996, when he was first elected to the Legislature.

Back in 1973, then-Gov. Ronald Reagan called a special election to sell voters on his proposed tax and spending limit. It was complex and convoluted. Not even the great communicator could explain it. Opponents convinced many Californians it would lead to higher local taxes. A few days before the election, a TV interviewer asked the governor: "Do you think the average voter really understands the language of the proposition?" "No," Reagan responded. "He shouldn't try. I don't either."
