Robert Novak: California’s runaway recall

More on Gray Davis. He is already a lame duck. Professional petitioners will have no problem gaining that many signatures given time.

While bipartisan establishment politicians remain in denial, realists now are taking the recall movement seriously. Dave Galliard, a Sacramento-based political consultant seeking signatures for recall petitions, says 520,000 voters have signed. He is aiming for 1.2 million, providing insurance that the required 897,000 valid names are collected. If this is done by July 18, an election must be held in September or October. Gov. Davis, at 21 percent approval in a recent private labor union poll, cannot be expected to survive.
This one is going to heat up a lot for the next month or so.
