Discuss, illustrating how the process by which Arnold became governor failed the democratic process both as idealised in general and as implemented in the republic of the United States of America. Points will be deducted for any reference that dares to connect the American Democratic party to either concept of democracy. Note that personal bias for or against the governor should not be allowed to bias your answer to any extreme.
As normal for me discussing politics, posts deemed to be particularly idiotic or offensive on either side will be mocked or deleted. The option as to which is solely mine, as always, and is restated as a reminder to those who will use this as an excuse for propaganda and/or flames.
