Recalling Davis

Barring a successful court challenge, there will be a recall vote on California Governor Gray Davis sometime in the next several months.

With his approval ratings hovering in the low 20s, Davis acknowledged Wednesday that he has not "done everything perfect," but vowed that he will fight and win the election.
"Remember, there's a lot more people willing to vote against the recall than there are who think I'm doing a good job."

Exactly right. If he had been doing a just bad job, instead of soaring to the "less than perfect standard," his approval rating might be, oh, in the single digits.

UPDATE: Article 2, Section 15(c) of the California Constitution, states in pertinent part: "The [recalled] officer may not be a candidate" in the replacement election, so Davis cannot replace himself.
