Hmpf. I'm not sure I like the way the latest about the California recall election covers Cruz Bustamante. The first graf makes Bustamante seem like a schemer giving Gray Davis and his opponents no time to do their campaigning for the election to be held October 7. In a bit of "burying the lede", the fourth graf (not implied by the headline) said, "State law required Bustamante to set the election date 60 to 80 days from Wednesday's certification and he chose the last possible date." So much for being a schemer.

Apparently, Bustamante thought better of the idea that there should be no successor election as the second half of the recall question, saying that there will be one. Again, so much for beign a schemer angling for the Governor's chair.
