Posted:First thought, only in California.
Second thought, only in America would someone who can barely speak American be in contention for an office...and he will probably win.

However, because I am feeling strangely contrary today (lack of sleep methinks), in Latin America many of their political (non-military) leaders are heralded artists...writers, painters, etc. They are national treasures, not gossip rag fodder. So from the artist perspective, then I think it is a step in the right direction, though not who I would pick at all.

Then again, Pro Wrestler Jessie Venture did a pretty good job with his stint in political office I understand...so why the hell not? Performance industry is mostly politics and business anyway, and who better than a cheesy actor to smile at the media and unbelievably say stupid things like "While I tried it, I did not inhale." or "We will hunt them down like the wild animals they are." (and those are Presidential quotes! )

Posted:On an empathic level, I agree with Mechhead.

However, thats the price of fame in some careers. Any adult who chose that career path in the 40 years or so knew exactly what would happen to their life. With the money, and the fame, comes all the rest of it.

If you don't want the rest of it, don't take the money or fame...

And somehow, choosing a political career kinda means he's not to shy of the limelight huh?

Posted:*reading back over thread* Methinks Mechhead is a bit overly defensive. Where is there character bashing going around? He is a cheesy actor and I was bashing our Presidents past and present!
*wonder how long the FBI file is on me after all the bashing I have done online*

And, anyone who has ever seen/read anything about Arnie knows he is a savvy businessman. He is one of the many who did well with their money in Hollywood.

Posted:I just said "While I tried it, I did not inhale" in my best Arnie voice.....brilliant.

Ronald Regan was an actor (although b class me thinks). You can't give anyone a hard time for giving Arnie a hard time, c'mon look at him. Having said that everyone loves him (or should I think....he's hilarious) and I'm sure he'd tell you himself he wants or needs nobody's sympathy....

Posted:I agree with Mechhead. I guess if you're at the top some people just wanna take ya down a level.
There are a few people on HoP have migrated from another country to make another start in life, meself being one.
Arnie represents just how far you can achieve, and let's not pretend it didn't take a lifetime of hard work and perseverance. Just for that he's a hero of mine!
he came from a humble background, 14 and skinny in Austria, a district of Australia. Only in Europe.
i 4 1 am a huge arnie fan! so ...COME WITH ME IF YOU WANT TO LIVE!

btw have you dudes heard the commentary track fro the collector's addition of the first Conan? it's _hilarious_!

Posted:arnie i read what he wants to do a he has alot of clarity, he stands for equality we wants gay people to have the right to get married a few education changes we seems like he truley wants to make a diffrence,
well what other reasons would he want to do it for.
according from the tabloids he has made close to 60 films most of which the min he gets is 20 mil not including his roylities i think its safe to say hes worth a billion at least SO HES NOT IN IT FOR THE MONEY, he does not agree with violence .
well it seems to me why not he has got to better than most the red necks over there any ways.

Latest new from pedants corner : He won't ever become president cos you have to be born American to become president (unless they change the law of course).

Fair dos to him say I - and i agree with Pele's sentiment that it might be good to get artists into office.

I'm not sure years of being a politician does anyone good - too distracted from reality

But how that relates to actors and whether they're in touch with reality's another story

Posted:i don't know what to think about that, it might be really good or really bad, i hope it gets really good...

i like the way he approaches it, with humour and stuff, i just love two things he has said(or i heard he had). i can't quote, coz i don't remember exact words, but one was about how he owned a lot of money, so nobody could "buy" him, and the other one was about that he was such a bad actor, he wouldn't be able to lie to the people without them noticing

well, we'll see what happens...
hehe TO BE CONTINUED...
