In noting the election last week of 42-year-old Eric Garcetti as the youngest mayor of Los Angeles in a century, American Prospect columnist Harold Meyerson pointed out that the new mayor "will surely make a name for himself as an environmental leader and social progressive."

Meyerson predicted Garcetti will join such other relatively young California Democrats as state Attorney General Kamala Harris, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and outgoing Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa as most likely to succeed the state's septuagenarian Democratic leaders: Gov. Jerry Brown, and Sens. Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein.

Brown, who just turned 75, is in his third nonconsecutive term as governor and is set to break the record of Republican Earl Warren as longest-serving governor of the Golden State.

At the National Governors Association meeting in February, Brown deadpanned to Newsmax, saying “Earl Warren resigned in mid-term to become chief justice. I will break his record if I serve the rest of my term, but I will resign if appointed chief justice.”
