Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who fancies himself “the people’s governor,” was shut out last night. All the statewide ballot measures, including the four he specifically campaigned for, were defeated, some badly.
The reformist opportunity represented by his election in the last special election in 2003 has now been fully normalized. As always happens under our electoral and law-making institutions.
This is a stinging vote of no confidence from the people of California. Time for a de Gaulle.
