Part of me feels that Angelides doesn't have a chance. I have three things to base this on.
1. The fact that there are many signs that his campaign is already faltering.
2. The fact that Angelides is going against someone with amazing Star Power, Name Recognition and free airtime (and THAT situation isn't being handled well at all).
3. He looks like a mouse.
One person has stage presence and the image of actually being animate. Angelides is rather reserved when it comes to expression and it is sad that image and presence means everything but it really does. The majority of the electorate does not care about the issues, most vote by their gut.
Angelides really needs to prove himself on this field.
