Ahhhhhrnold wins…

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s win of the California Gubernatorial Race demonstrates only that American voters elect their politicians based solely on image and that the idea a politician had to have a true platform disappeared with the advent of television. Unfortunately, just like in their personal lives, Americans have yet to learn that what you see is not always what you get.

What happens now is up to Schwarzenegger. He won’t be able to fake the result or act his way out of California’s problems. His personal life and his standards of conduct will be under more scrutiny than ever before. Hopefully, the prize of his election win will not turn out to be personal and political defeat.

Do the voters of California understand that by electing him as Governor they guaranteed no more Schwarzenegger movies? Or was that just another reason why they did it?
