Main Topic California Election Results and Analysis 18 MIN, 4 SEC

Bipartisanship is the California way. That's what Governor Schwarzenegger said after yesterday's huge re-election victory and the success of the infrastructure bonds he and Democratic leaders put on the ballot. US Senator Diane Feinstein won in a walk, and Jerry Brown will be back in the statewide political picture, this time as Attorney General.  Schwarzenegger bucked the national Democratic tide with a huge re-election win just one year after the crushing defeat of his special election measures, but will his plans for healthcare, prison reform and the water supply be conducive to more cooperation or will they accentuate the partisan differences that still exist in Sacramento?
