Reuters: Schwarzenegger says Democratic win is healthy

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, one of few Republicans to shine at the mid-term elections, said on Thursday the Democratic victories were healthy for U.S. politics.

“I think it is good that there are new ideas and new blood because Washington was stuck. They could not move forward, not much was accomplished; I think it was terrible,” he told reporters on a trip to Mexico.

Former bodybuilder and star of the “Terminator” action movies, Schwarzenegger won reelection by a landside on Tuesday after distancing himself from President George W. Bush and adopting moderate positions on some issues.

Easy for the Terminator to say.

Let’s hope he stays GOP enough to terminate Senator Barbara Boxer in four years.

Reuters: Schwarzenegger gains landslide California win

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger won re-election by a landslide after distancing himself from fellow Republican President George W. Bush and taking a moderate stance, results on Wednesday showed.

The former Hollywood star first elected three years ago in an unprecedented recall vote beat his Democratic opponent, State Treasurer Phil Angelides, by 17 points with 99.6 percent of Tuesday’s vote counted.

“What a fantastic evening; I love doing sequels,” Schwarzenegger told supporters in Beverly Hills. “But this without any doubt is my favorite sequel.”

The star of the “Terminator” films scrapped a confrontational style that served him well as a champion bodybuilder and in movies but led to a complete defeat in a special initiative election last year.

A humbled Schwarzenegger, 59, turned on his charm, no longer taunted Democratic legislators as “girlie men” and backed a series of bipartisan laws, including reducing the state’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Arnold made “NICE” and was rewarded by his re-election.

Will it continue?

Perhaps

But, now the Governator actually has to GOVERN…..

Stay tuned…….

Xinhua: California election turnout expected to be modest

Overall, turnout is expected to be modest with roughly 8.7 million – or 55 percent – of California’s 15.8 million registered voters likely to cast ballots by the time polls close at 8 p.m., according to California Secretary of State Bruce McPherson.

That would put turnout above the 51 percent of four years ago, when Governor Gray Davis won reelection, but below the 60 percent of October 2003, when voters recalled Davis and replaced him with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

McPherson projected that 44 percent of the votes cast in the Tuesday election will be by absentee ballot. By Friday afternoon, the ballots of at least 1.8 million voters had already reached county election offices.
