"I promise you if I get elected to be governor of this great state, I will continue on my crusade for this state and across the country to make sure after-school programs will be available in every public school in the whole United States."
Despite his ambitions, Arnolds opponents are already criticizing him for lacking political experience. Early Friday the box office millionaire said that if elected, hard work and leadership will be the keys to his success.

SOT: Arnold Schwarzenegger/Gubernatorial Candidate

"What you need is leadership, you've got to have great ideas and you've got to have some thinking out of the box kind of ideas."

SOT: George W. Bush

"I'm interested in the process...it's fascinating to see who's in and who's out...and yeah, I think he'd be a good governor."
Schwarzenegger has become the highest profile candidate in what some critics are now calling a popularity contest instead of a political race. A dozen others have already been certified to be on the ballot, still more than three hundred others have officially taken out the papers to run. The deadline to file is Saturday.))
