Over the nest few weeks, a number of prominent governors will be stepping down due to being defeated in election, reaching their term limits, pursuing a different career, or leaving politics because of a scandal. Some of these governors include Schwarzenegger from California, Crist of Florida, Richardson of New Mexico, and Paterson of New York. Some of the governors are leaving office as early as tomorrow. It's out with the old and in with the new for a lot of states as we head into the new year, and we'll have to see how, and if, this changes state policies.
