California congresspersons Dana Rohrabacher and Mary Bono figure that Arnie has a good chance at being elected governor of California should the position open up this fall, according to this story.
*sigh*. At least Reagan made lots of conservative speeches for many years before running for Governor. Aside from endorsing George Bush Sr. in 1988, has Schwarzenegger done much politically? Has Arnold done so in a way that could have damaged his career (such as Reagan did in campaigning on TV for Goldwater in 1964)?
It might be a nice change to have a non-politician in the job, but I think a wait and see attitude might be warranted just the same.
