Just saw Arnold's victory speech on the news...sounded like the
ending of a movie script ;)
The whole recall election has been followed fairly closely here (in Kenya)
by the media and not because of the Schwarzenneger.
A new constitution is being drawn up in Kenya (by an indepedent
commission), and one of the most controversial elements that was
approved was one that allows a member of parliament to be recalled on the
basis of a signature campaign.
Of course, not a single MP is happy with the clause -- they did their best
it removed , but failed :)
How far does this recall thing go in the US? can a senator or the
be recalled on signature campaigns?
