Newsweek magazine turns its focus to California as it paints Gov. Jerry Brown as the state's savior in a cover story this week. The lengthy profile touts Brown's work on climate change, the economy and his low-key style.
It also says Brown would have been a great presidential candidate if the 78-year-old were a bit younger:
"Brown, by contrast, is far too inquisitive and restless for ideologies, which is why some sought to draft him into a 2016 presidential race in which Trump and Bernie Sanders have been the two candidates engendering the most enthusiasm, each offering unrealistic ideas involving border walls and class revolt," reporter Alexander Nazaryan writes.
