Governator. That's what many people are calling Governor-Elect Schwarzenegger.
I'm neither happy nor sad that Arnold won. I am, however, happy the Bustamonte did not win and that McClintock came in such a distant third that he almost wasn't worth counting. Camejo garned enough votes that the Greens should be at the next Gubernatorial debate (again) and that's important.
Even though I have some mixed opinions on the recall itself, I'm NOT sorry to see Davis go. The only reason he was re-elected was because Bill Simon was the greater evil in the last election.
It's the weird end to a weird chapter in California history. Of course, it's also the weird beginning to a new chapter... we'll have to see how it unfolds. Arnie wasn't very specific about a lot of things (lots of vague rhetoric and catchy soundbytes), but he plans to do at least two things in the first 100 days that I am pretty happy about. Repeal the car tax and smack down the illegal aliens' driver's licenses.
With regards to our fiscal woes, well... we'll see. I hope you can deliver on your promises Governor Schwarzenegger.
By the way, for the first time in my life I voted GREEN.
