Actually the recall was started by Democrats. Didn't need to get people angry over taxes, it was plain to see. And it was more about how he said they money would be spent, then didn't do it the way he promised. We had 2 million dollars per school(higher education school), cut in one year, and still adds going out for extra state government jobs opening, car tax more then tripled. Yes I payed $1200 to register my car. We pay 30-50 cents more then the national average per gallon for gas, all because of some fake ass amissions standard that is actually worse for the enviorment.
What was the California recall about? Getting people ANGRY over taxes, and STARCROSSED over an emotionally appealing hero. Schwarzenegger.
Arnold is very charismatic, he is also very fiscally conservative(what the state needs and wanted right now), but he is very social moderate(pro-choice, ect..) He, or any canidate that had the balls to stand up for those same beliefs would have beat Davis.

Who ever wins we lose. Bush will screw the economy but Kerry will screw our military. If Kerry reduces our military then terrorist will attack with out fear of reprsisal. If Bush wins well everybody hates him for a lot of reasons. I just wonder what happened to the good old days when we had good presidents. What will we do with these horrible leaders.

More jobs are being created monthly than at any time in history. Unemployment is in Florida where I live is near its all time low and employers are having a hard time finding employees who want to work. Employment is higher nationally than at the end of Clinton's first term.

Ambient, that's a completely unfair assessment of Democrats as a group IMO. Especially considering your implication that Republicans are strictly logical and above emotion or election shinanigans.
