    Despite rumors to the contrary, Arnold Schwarzenegger said on the Tonight Show that he intends to run in the special election against Gray Davis. I sincerely hope that the "Total Recall" succeeds so that Arnold will be the next gubernator.

    Maybe he can prevent Skynet for becoming self aware as governor.

    following in the footsteps of reagan, eh?

    i like this quote from Sen Feinstein: the election is "more and more like a carnival every day."

    I like his stance on most political issues. Just wait. You will really like his person, and his policy.

    Well, maybe not his policy.

    But if you've been following the news you'd see that there are quite a few people running for this election.

    Although I'd have to say he's probably the biggest name I've seen yet.

    And he's always wanted to get into politics.

    Good for him, but the election is going to be nuts.

    I like him because of the fact that he has not been a politician his whole life.

    That's a huge plus in my book and instantly makes him a better candidate in my eyes.

    Hey, the guy does have a degree in International Marketting and Business Administration.

    The thing that still bugs me about this whole recall business is that if 49% vote for Davis and the other 51% gets split between all the other candidates the next governor could be brought in with a mandate of as little as 5% of the electorate. Think about that, 49% gets beat by 5%, but then again the current bush administration took power with a minority of the vote.

    As the LA Times has already noted - who better than someone who can explain Bush's policies on civil liberties in their original German.....

    No, if in any election every, votes mattered more in 2000 than in any other election nationally that I can think of.

    Between a hardcore pornographer, a car thief and a Viennese weightlifter running, I think Californians may be seeing Davis as not so bad afterall.

    I personally wouldn't like to see arnold win the election, but the only real reason for that is so that he can make terminator 4 instead :p

    Wowee that was fast! Zimv20! You're the winner...you may want to check out the thread I posted in the community discussion forum. Anyway, I came here to add that arnold's not the only celebrity running in Cali...the list includes Gary Coleman, D.L. Hughley, Gallagher (y'know, the guy with the mallet and the melons?) and Larry Flint...its getting out of hand

    "Schwarzenegger, 56, announced his decision during a taping of ''The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,'' calling it the toughest he's made since deciding to get a bikini wax in 1978."

    God help us.

    We've got a pornographer, an actor with an MBA, and Angelyne, who is famous for nothing but having billboards all over Hollywood for years with her puckered mug and puckered breasts begging to be hired as an actress/whatever.

    Will my home state finally fall into the Pacific Ocean? This is an embarrassing circus, and would certainly seem unstable and out of control to the rest of the country...and the world. Now the French have something to make fun of US for.

    Then again, due to lies, deciet and backdoor shenanigans, we experienced record high electric bills and rolling brownouts a few summers ago that nearly brought our state to its knees. That's the shame of it...we'll never know the actual truth of Politics...it is, indeed, its own animal, and has more and more become the dog being wagged by the tail of corruption and corporate greed, greased by the promise of campaign contributions, favors, and power play.

    So, screw it, why not? I think if the frozen head of Walt Disney were to be put on the ballot, it would get votes. *sigh*

    since he drives a hummer, should we assume schwarzenegger will lose the environmental vote?
