Hubris and Schwarzenegger

I actually felt a little sorry for him as I read of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s final State of the Union address. He is a man of hubris, with “overbearing pride and presumption and arrogance.” He faced the enormous complexity and intransigence of the powers that run and influence the mechanics of the State of California. His sweeping agenda and efforts for change had minimal success. He put on a brave face and soldiers on, hubris hardly diminished.
