    We wouldn't have a "bunch of sparsely populated, mostly Republican districts".  California does not have enough people in it's rural communities to really make that much of a difference in districts made up of 600,000+ people.  The rural communities are too spread out (California is the third largest state) and rural voters are dwarfed by suburban and urban voters.

    What we will have under an Arnold redistricting are basically two types of districts.  Urban and sub-urban.  The urban districts will be HEAVILY Democratic, and the suburban districts will be slightly in favor of Republicans.  It's a classic gerrymander.
