ARNOLD NOT LEGITIMATE?

Playing a "popular vote theme", Democrats in denial have been saying that Arnold has no mandate since he did not get a majority of the votes cast.

Andrew Sullivan has a post today that should cause them pause:

ARNOLD'S VICTORY: If some Dems want to delegitimize Schwarzenegger's triumph, they should surely consider this: in Gray Davis's re-election bid in 2002, he gained 3.47 million votes. Arnold just won 3.69 million votes. The vote to recall Davis garnered 4.36 million. If that isn't legitimacy, what is?
