6. This law has been on the books since early 20th century.
As far as I know no one EVER considered the possibility of using it in this manner; it was designed to provide a peoples outlet to recall a criminal or insane governor.

So while possible, I doubt any grad student had forcast this scenario. Modern political thought up to this point had not accomodated the neocon philosophy of victory at all costs. Democrats are still asleep on this aspect of their opponents.
