    I think Arnold’s chances are 7 of 10. He’s got the name recognition, but has two hurdles. First, he’s got to get his political credentials out there- especially his work on Proposition 49. Second, he has to push the other 2 GOP candidates out of the race. Then, he has a great shot at being the next California Governor.

    Well, Simon is gone, although he never had a chance in the first place. That leaves Ueberroth and McClintock, which will barely register on anyone’s radar.
    However, that doesn’t negate that we live in a liberal country (combine Gore votes and Nadar votes from last election, much more than 50%), not to mention an extremely liberal state. I don’t think it’ll be possible for Arnold to stem that tide, despite his celebrity status.
    He also is also likely polarizing the female vote, as his “staff” is turning into a good ol’ boys club. Not to mention stupidity such as Rob Lowe. (One actor who played a politician advising another actor trying to be a real politician. Comedy!) Then there’s the Wiesenthal “investigation” into his father.
    It appears to be turning into an uphill battle.

    Write McClintock and ask him to drop out in order for the same reasons Simons dropped out. You can write him at:
