What Will Schwarzenegger Do After California Governor?

What will Arnold Schwarzenegger do after California Governor? The former movie star and popular governor will defeinitely have options. It's just a matter fo which direction he chooses to go after his term expires.

The 61 yr old Republican governor has been asked repeatedly whether he would entertain a position if offered one by the Democratic president elect, most likely focused on alternative energy or other environmental initiatives.

Will he share the stage with Al Gore as a global environmental crusader, promote green technology for a Barack Obama administration, run for the US Senate? Or might he pursue political reform on a broader scale, as he has hinted in appearances with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who shares Schwarzenegger's independent streak?

Schwarzenegger's name comes up as a possible US Senate candidate should Senator Dianne Feinstein decide to run for governor in 2010 or if he chose to run against Senator Barbara Boxer. Both are Democrats. But a governor accustomed to bright lights may be unlikely to feel satisfied in the Senate, as one actor in a cast of a hundred. His centrist political philosophy also could make it difficult for him to survive a Republican primary in his home state.
