California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger told reporters yesterday Tuesday that he didn’t face the pressure some Republican state legislators faced in pushing through a necessary tax increase because unlike the legislators, he wasn’t going to be running for anything.
Did that mean he would not challenge Barbara Boxer for her U.S. Senate seat?
“When I say I’m not running for anything, that’s exactly what I mean . . . until you change the Constitution.”
Should we change the Constitution? Not specifically for Arnold, but for others as well. Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, for example, was born in Canada and is ineligible. We take a lot of very smart, talented people out of the candidate pool with that native-born requirement, and for no rational reason that I can think of.
And as a bonus, once the Constitution is amended, Barack Obama could finally come clean about his REAL place of birth. Right guys?
