I wonder, too, if the dismal results of California's recall of Gray Davis had any effect. I think very few Californians would now consider that recall successful or even warranted. The campaign alone, with its multitude of nutter candidates, made the state a national laughing-stock once again.

Then, we chose a loose-cannon movie star over Gov. Milque-toast, who made one bad decision (raising auto registration fees)in a sincere attempt to partially reduce the state's debt. If the voters had forgiven Davis that relatively minor trespass(I know! I know! It is California where cars are our treasures), there is a very good chance he may have done a better job of debt reduction than did Arnold, who did next to nothing, if anything at all, in this vital matter.

I think that the vast majority of Californians were happy to see Arnold leave the Governor's mansion. In retrospect, they likely view the recall as a total waste of money, accomplishing nothing other than adding more bulk to Arnold's hyperinflated ego.
