National recall?

California has a reputation for being just that much ahead of the curve, in culture, in trends, in politics. It has long been a truism that, as California goes, so goes the rest of the nation.

So let me suggest one California intitution that would be well implemented nationally: the recall election.

Article 2, section 14 provides the particulars for the process of recalling an elected official. Let me be among those to suggest the usefullness for such a process on the national level.

As George Bush's approval ratings plummets to Nixonian lows, wouldn't it be nice if the nation had the choice of removing King W and his band of incompetents from the Whitehouse?
