Arnold Schwarzenegger Is America's Shrewdish Politician
Now, 18 months after he took office, Shwarzenneger's ascent is no laughing matter, at least to the Democrats who laughed initially. In a terrific article in Slate today titled "The Governator gets serious." Seth Faison explains how Schwarzennger has been able to govern effectively and bipass an openly hostile legislature by taking his budget initiatives to the people. California has been big on referendums, and Schwarzenegger is using them, going on TV and touring the state to sell his ideas from pension reform to a new, non-political way to draw up Congressional districts every four years. Faison is a big fan of this, as am I, as it will help end the easy ride incubants get in the state. Schwarzenneger, in Faison's view, is almost Reganesque in his charm, and has some old Reagan hands like George Schultz advising him. Looking at all he has done since taking office, at the changes he's made and wants to make, I think Arnold Schrwazenneger is America's shrewdist politician. He has a grasp on politcs that most Senator's don't. If he can't be President, can I suggest Arnold run against Barbara "Grandstand" Boxer for the Senate? I think California, and America, would both be winners in that equation. Also, "Predator" is the greatest Action film ever made. No point, just wanted to say it.
