What do you do when you are the mayor of San Francisco and your poorly timed push for gay marriages is blamed for your party's loss in a presidential election, you get yourself involved in a sleazy sex scandal where you get caught sleeping with the wife of your campaign manager, and a much criticized policy of declaring the municipality you represent a "sanctuary city" results in a multiple murder by an illegal alien? Why you get the San Francisco Chronicle to write a glowing story about you enthusing about how you are a "hotshot to watch" with a bright political future on the horizon. Such is the case with San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom, no stranger to other puff pieces such as this June story in Time magazine. San Francisco Chronicle political writers Joe Garofoli and Carla Marinucci use Newsom's appearance at the Democrat convention in San Francisco as a launch platform for gushing over their mayor's future:

A sleazy sex scandal is resume enhancement for the Democrat Party. Nothing newsom.
Must be bad news coming out soon about him. The SFC always writes glowing things about him just before bad news.
I'm half serious.
Hey, Newsom has got more qualifications for higher office than Obama. I’ll bet more than a few DNC delegates wish they could trade for him. ;)
Merely sleeping with her wouldn't be so bad, but I bet he was screwing her, too.
Isn’t a “hotshot” a lethal dose of drugs (or a dose of lethal drugs)?
Gavin Newsome makes Barack Obama look like a man of substance and character. He’s an empty suit’s empty suit.
Truly amazing, scandals aside, he could be fairly blamed for the defeat in ‘04 by the images of his lawless gay marriage antics bringing the conservative faithful to the polls. Do any dems even remember the “values votors” and their brief interlude of misquoting scripture at every opportunity?
With such a sleazeball as it’s golden boy I don’t know how the dems continue to exist as a party. The difference between his and John Edwards’ fate is, of course, he always sold himself as an unrepentant hedonist.
I fear his statewide ambitions are seriously delusional. San Fran Freako and Hollywood do not represent all of the Golden State.
If those poll results about gay marriage that came out today are accurate, the values that Newsom represents do in fact prevail in California. It was only a question of time, and he was apparently on the cutting edge.
