Ben at Infinite Monkeys suggests payback for McClintock in the appointment of Beth Rogers to the Schwartzenegger transition team ... I see it differently. As a member of the transition, Beth will be prevented from talking bad about McClintock and from organizing a campaign against him. Not that she won't run against him for State Senate, she still might, but if she started her campaign against him today, she'd have a couple hundred thousand in her campaign account by the end of the year.
Arnold is doing McC a big, giant favor by holding Beth back.
