Just read an article claiming that if Gov. Davis can't solve California's power crisis, Schwarzenegger may soon pursue a career in politics a la Reagan.

What is he supposed to say when they do the video on his father (you know those feel good videos that play at the conventions or politicians - my dad was a factory worker, etc.) What are they supposed to do about Arnold. "My father was a Nazi. I grew up honoring the memory of the Fuerer." That's a terrible rags to richs story.

Definitely he'll outbench Ventura. Have you see "the Body" lately. He's totally skinny and weak.

What could he possibly promise the people of California? Is he going to balance the budget or solve the power crisis?

News tidbit...

Is muscle-bound Hollywood action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger going to run for governor of California? A day after saying Schwarzenegger wouldn't try next year for the office held by Democratic Gov. Gray Davis, publicist Jill Eisenstadt said Wednesday her client's mind "is not made up," and that Schwarzenegger will decide in the next couple of months. On Tuesday, Eisenstadt said the "timing's not right" for the action star, explaining that Schwarzenegger had family and film obligations preventing him from running for public office next year. The star of the "Terminator" films and "Predator," among others, whet the appetites of fellow Republicans dreaming of an actor-to-governor sequel when he told a Los Angeles Times columnist a month ago that the governor's job was appealing. After all, Republican Ronald Reagan had gone from Hollywood to Sacramento to the White House. "I've thought about it many times because I love politics," Schwarzenegger said then. "I get such great satisfaction out of helping people."

Action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed he is vying to become Governor of California. With current Governor Gray Davis facing difficulties, the Hollywood star's political ambitions with the Republican Party could be expedited. But his political adviser, George Gorton, insists the hardman actor's statement does not represent a change in his thinking. Gorton says, "The bottom line fact is he hasn't decided whether he's going to run or not if the recall qualifies, and he's so terribly busy right now." He adds the 55-year-old actor would decide whether to run after the July 2nd opening of eagerly awaited movie sequel Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines, and only if it becomes clear the recall will qualify for the ballot. Supporters must collect nearly 900,000 valid signatures to make that happen. Gorton confirmed Schwarzenegger has been having discussions with political insiders and potential supporters. He says, "Mostly he's been focusing on two things, and one is the movie and the other is Inner-City Games, but occasionally he's pulled into conversation with key people."

(AP) - Arnold Schwarzenegger refuses to terminate rumors of a run for governor while promoting his latest movie, joking that: "You haven't seen special effects like this since the California state budget." Schwarzenegger's advisers have said he will decide whether to run after the July 2 release of his movie and only if it becomes clear that an effort under way to recall Gov. Gray Davis will qualify for the ballot. If voters decide to oust Davis, they would also have to choose a successor.

Only days before the release of Terminator 3, Arnold Schwarzenegger has moved closer than ever to announcing that he plans to run for governor if a recall election is held in California in November. Asked by the New York Post whether he would give up his film career to run for governor, Schwarzenegger, a Republican, replied, "If the party needs me, I would without any doubt be interested in doing that rather than doing another movie. ... I would give up my movie career for that." His statement was as close as he has come for an actual announcement, and he hedged it by stating, "I am not even thinking about [running] now, because the recall hasn't happened yet. As it plays out, then I can make that decision."

Arnold Schwarzenegger will not terminate his acting career in order to enter politics, published reports said today (Tuesday). He reportedly was dissuaded from running for California governor by his wife, Maria Shriver, the NBC news reporter who is the daughter of Kennedy-clan member Sergeant Shriver. (Today's Los Angeles Times reported that Shriver has had "private discussions" with NBC News execs about her duties as cohost of Dateline NBC in the event that her husband decided to run.) Schwarzenegger, who reportedly earned nearly $30 million for Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, reportedly told former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan that he intends to remain in the film industry. However, early today a spokesman for the actor said that the reports that he had decided not to run "are incorrect." He added: "He has made no decision at this time. He will continue to weigh the pros and cons with his family and will continue to seek the counsel of supporters and colleagues."

Arnold Schwarzenegger is expected to announce either today (Thursday) or tomorrow that he will not run for governor of California in the upcoming Oct. 7 recall election, Daily Variety reported today. The trade publication said that the actor will likely endorse former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan. Numerous publications have reported that Schwarzenegger was dissuaded from running by his wife, Maria Shriver. Meanwhile, today's Los Angeles Times reported that two weeks ago Schwarzenegger phoned Ivan Reitman, who directed him in Twins, Kindergarten Cop, and Junior, and asked him to direct a family comedy called Big Sir. Reitman reportedly has not yet responded.

Keeping one foot in the world of politics and another in the world of entertainment, Arnold Schwarzenegger said Thursday that he will announce his decision about whether he will run for governor of California next Wednesday, then immediately go on the Tonight show to discuss his decision with Jay Leno. A spokesman for the actor maintained that, despite numerous reports that he had decided to opt out of the gubernatorial race, he has not yet made a decision. Reuters indicated today (Friday) that he is likely to throw his support to former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, who, in turn, will say that if he is elected in the Oct. 7 recall balloting he will only serve out the rest of Gov. Gray Davis' term. Riordan, in turn, would then be expected to back Schwarzenegger for the Republican nomination in 2006.
