A Hybrid in a Field of Hummers

A visit with California gubernatorial hopeful Arianna Huffington

| September 2003

Arianna Huffington is the front-running independent candidate for governor in California's upcoming recall election. Her campaign is the latest development in a fascinating 10-year journey from compassionate conservative -- she once spoke at a Republican congressional retreat -- to progressive populist.

An author and nationally syndicated columnist, Huffington was born in Greece, graduated from Cambridge University with an M.A. in economics, and moved to America in 1980. She has published nine books, the most recent of which is a scathing attack on the failures of corporate America, Pigs At The Trough: How Corporations Are Stealing Democracy. She was formerly married to conservative congressman Michael Huffington, and currently lives with her two daughters in Los Angeles.
