The Wall Street Journal published an editorial highlighting this "governor's report card" put out by my favorite think tank, the Cato Institute.

Look who's the top scorer! None other than Ahnold. The other thing to note is that most top scorers are Republican.

"So what?" Europeans might say, but as the trend in American politics goes, most future presidents are chosen from the pool of state governors, not from the pool of congressmen (it has probably to do with congresspeople having to flip-flop so often in their careers; the public hates that).

The word on the blogosphere is that the one Democratic governor to look out for is Tennessee's Phil Bredesen: he's a Democrat who won a lot of Republican votes.
