2008 Over, But Who’s Next For Republicans?

sarah.jpgThe election is only five days gone, but the Republicans (if you can ever believe anything that AOL posts) are already huddling to find a candidate to challenge Barack in 2012.

A few names near the top of their list include Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich (remember him?) and of course, Tina Fey-lookalike Sarah Palin.

But the one they seem to have overlooked, Cal. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, was made clear to me last week when I did an interview with Australian radio about my documentary, “Running with Arnold.” The Aussies asked me: “Wouldn’t Arnold be the next Republican nominee?”arnolds2.jpg

I explained to them that the Ah-nuld would have to amend the Constitution to allow a foreign-born resident to become President and it would take two-thirds of Congress to say yes. Unless Arnold saves the world or maybe just the economy in the next couple of years, it’s unlikely.

But it could still be a possibility. Arnold, if he can gain some momentum, could be a possible candidate. It’s been a boyhood dream of Arnold’s for years (my doc made clear), so I’m sure he would welcome it. We would also be prepping for “Running with Arnold 2.”
