    SACRAMENTO -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger doesn't have a backup plan if the Legislature or voters reject his proposal to sell $15 billion worth of bonds to pay off the state's existing deficit. "Failure is no option. It just doesn't exist," the Republican governor said Monday. Without a backup, he said, "That means it has to happen." To push the plan, which must be approved by the Legislature by midnight Friday, the new governor said he's ready to take his budget proposal to the voters in recalcitrant lawmakers' districts and he will invite legislators to join him in pushing the bond...

    <p>Gov.-elect Arnold Schwarzenegger filled out a big chunk of his senior staff today with a selection of conservative, liberal and bipartisan figures – a pattern that we can probably expect to see a lot of from this point forward. The most eye-popping appointment was Bonnie Reiss as senior adviser to the governor. Reiss is a friend and associate of Schwarzenegger for nearly 25 years. She is also a Democrat who first came into the Schwarzenegger orbit while working for Teddy Kennedy in the late 1970s, when the new governor and his future wife, Maria Shriver, were dating. Reiss, a former entertainment lawyer, was an environmental activist who formed a group to encourage Hollywood stars to promote environmental causes through their television shows. She later ran Schwarzenegger's private charity focused on inner-city after-school programs. Officially, Reiss will focus on retaining California’s entertainment industry and on children’s issues.

She was a key figure in the campaign and has been at his side throughout the transition.</p>
