BUSTAMANTE OUT?....The California Political Review is reporting that Cruz Bustamante is under tremendous pressure to withdraw from the recall race. Apparently the thinking here is that there are a certain number of Democrats who are planning to vote for the recall as long as there's a Democrat on the ballot to replace Gray Davis, but they'll vote against the recall if there isn't. So if Bustamante is off the ballot, maybe there will be a 5-10% swing against the recall, and that will do the job.

Maybe. I guess it's worth a shot.

(Although Ezra Klein, who pointed me to this, thinks otherwise. He's afraid it could somehow lead to McClintock winning, which seems pretty unlikely to me. But then, I don't think Arnold is going to be seriously hurt by the groping charges.)
