There's political news that breaks the mold, and political news that reinforces the familiar narrative. This week, consider it more of the latter.

Our Capitol Connection podcast this week examines how some of the week's news seem to fit in nicely with things we've seen a lot of in 2014 and before: a new leader of the state Assembly who likely will align well with what's happened before her... and two bills that will fizzle out because, as we know, Democratic dominance under the state Capitol dome doesn't necessarily mean major change.

Anthony York of the Los Angeles Times and I also chat about the demise of an initiative to raise the minimum wage, and how it could have played a big role in this fall's race for governor.
