    I'd prefer to call him the Commander of California.

    Though I am kinda disappointed. He went from over 50% at the beginning to 48% at the time of this post.

    I think this whole recall thing is a joke. How can people believe Arnold will do better job than Governor Davis? He has no past experience in politics. People only voted for him because every other person on the ballot were nobodies.

    California should like his leftists social positions. At least he has tried to portray himself as a fiscal conservative. Economically, that's what they need. Davis was the other end of the spectrum on fiscal issues. They had good reason to remove him.

    EDIT: and if you have some sort of wise crack comment like 'well haha that sure explains a lot' then you are perfectly correct and should say it.

    I think this is actually going to be a massive negative for the republican party in CA. There is no way that Arnold can pull the state far enough out of rescession and deficate. If he does do it he'll have to cut so many popular programs that he'll get killed on that issue. The car tax that people are ticked off about is built into a law passed before Gray Davis' time and so now Arnold as to use the legislater to repeal that law. However, there's NO way that the strongly democratic state congress is going to make that easy on him, and even if he does get it repealed the funding he's going to loose will kill him.

    Bottom line, I think he's inherited a bad situation and a congress that's hostile to him. I don't see him getting a new republican congress - due to social issues, and therefore he's just going to make republicans look bad so the democrats can retake the govenorship later.


    PS sorry for my bad writing here - it's been a long day.

    interestingly I agree with you kermi. You never see the effects of an economic policy very quickly. Tax cuts, tax increases etc... often take several years to show economic implact. Look at the roaring economy in the first years of Clinton, and the dip that started before his last year ended. He'd been in for 8 years. It was enough time for tax increases to take their effect.

    Arnold will be gone next election. Elections really aren't about who the best man is anyway. They're about who is putting on the best show.

    Arnold's not the governor, his advisors are.

    probably true.

    The only way this really effects me (and it does greatly) is that we won't be seeing a terminator 4. I'm really annoyed at that fact.

    I'm not familiar with California's internal governmental affairs, but Arnold Schwarzenegger has zero political experience. I would definitely not want someone best known for killing people and robots alike in movies to be the governor of my state.

    I think too many Californians fell for the media coverage and began thinking, "You know, maybe the governor we've just elected hasn't been doing such a good job after all, and Arnold is running?! Wow! I'll vote fo' da Terminator!"

    And did anyone else notice that the winner of the recall election only needs to get a plurality of the vote, even if that means only a very small percentage of the vote? That seems like rule by the minority (oligarchy), not democracy, to me.
