Arianna vs. the Terminator

Let's be honest with ourselves, Davis is out in California, which is why all of the discussion on who will be running next is so heavy. Whlie I don't think he's out yet, it must be hard for the guy when he doesn't seem to have any Democratic support pulling as loud as the Repulicans, and his own party is busy discussing if they will actually run a candidate against the Republican party.

While they still may, they've said they won't in an attempt to force the public to elect a Republican or, less likely, a 3rd party person and have them deal with the results. That brings me to two of the most interesting would-be runners : Arnold Schwarzenegger on the Republican ticket and Arianna Huffington on the Whatever ticket.

To be frank, I like Huffington a lot and I think that she'd probably be fine at the job. Moreover, from what I've read, (She's featured a lot on Salon) she's outspoken about several Republican gaffs including the misguided war on Iraq and the obscene breaks on SUV's. On the other hand, I think California could do worse then having Schwarzenegger as the winner.

I want to get a few things straight with the Schwarzenegger race, then. First, if he runs it will become a "Can this guy really win?" race. It will become the Schwarzenegger race. He'll have a hard time getting people to take him seriously. But, he's a moderate Republican who's light on gun restrictions, supports gay adoptions, and spoke out against the Clinton scandel, saying he was "embarressed to be a Republican" at the time of the greatest pressure on the ex-President. What I'm saying is, at least it's not Rush or Savage.

In any case, does anyone know more about the candidate's policys?
