Arnold Vetoes CA Electoral Vote Giveaway

Governor Schwarzenegger has made another good veto decision, turning down a plan passed by the state legislature which would have mandated that California's Presidential electoral votes be cast for the winner of the national popular vote, rather than for the winner of the vote in California.

I can't imagine the plan was constitutional, but who knows what the wacky 9th Circuit Court of Appeals might have done. Fortunately the Governor has spared us finding out, at least for now. Assemblyman Tom Umberg is threatening to put the measure on the ballot via the initiative process.
