Rise Of The Governator

Arnold Schwarzenegger is a Republican who has dual citizenship, though as a foreign citizen has to reside in the 'adoptive' country for 7 years before being able to run for the Presidency. Schwarzenegger has resided in the USA for many years and technically still an Austrian citizen by birth, marriage to Maria Shriver has ensured consolidation into the very American Kennedy family (Shriver's uncle was the late John F Kennedy). Maria Shriver is now First Lady of California.

Changes in the Constitution could allow 'Arnie' to run for the Presidency. The World would come around another loop in the circle: niece of the late JFK being the First Lady in the White House. It is possible that in 2012
(or 2016 if the two term limit happens), a race could exist between Schwarzenegger and Jeb Bush, Governor of Florida and brother of current President George W. Bush. This would effectively contain the office of President within the Bush and Kennedy bloodline. Interestingly, many years ago as a teenager in Austria, Schwarzenegger was beginning his (incredibly intense) climb to fame in bodybuilding. The summary of those years shows a one-tracked determination to be the best. To be number one. A remarkable journey for a remarkable man.

This early background illustrates how a possible future could take shape: Schwarzenegger must surely have the Presidency in his sights. Today, Governor of California. Within the next decade, President of the USA.

Good luck, Arnie.
