4. Ahnold in CA and Bush have nothing to do with each other...
At least not in the sense that the outcome of the recent CA recall will have a real bearing on the '04 race.

Why? Because many of the people who signed petitions or voted for the recall did it because they were just fed up. PERIOD. Most of us on this site are at least knowledgeable enough about electoral process to understand how something like this was manipulated from the get-go. But the average voter out there -- even those inclined to vote Democratic -- might have signed or voted for the recall simply because they wanted a change.

Hell, 5 years ago I would have voted for the recall, thinking I was helping to "make a difference". I know better now, but many out there don't through no real fault of their own. They just haven't had the scales lifted from their eyes yet.
