I've been watching, horrified, the California gubernatorial fiasco. The rest of the country looks at California as the hub of all extremes of American life, a caricature. This episode is proving that opinion valid.  Perhaps the rest of the country can learn from this...some of the things that can go WRONG with the Democratic process in the hands of extremists with money.  Frightening that such a small minority of the electorate can wield enough clout to drag a sitting  governor of the opposing political party out of office, and set up the possibility of replacing him with a candidate of their own who will certainly not receive the nod of a majority of  voters.  If this can happen in California, how far is it from becoming a reality on a national scale? 

Oh, almost DID happen to Bill Clinton, didn't it?
