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 
to get 
it removed , but failed :)

How far does this recall thing go in the US? can a senator or the 
president himself
be recalled on signature campaigns?
