    Arnold is just trying to make up for himself becoming a Democrat.
    Arnold it wont work, just come out of the closet and become a Democrat already, then you wont have to endorse people like Bush and McInsane.

    Arnold is just trying to save his own hide...and why did McCain have a wad of chew in his left check during the debate?

    The rest of the country doesn't know about the shape California is in right now. It's worse than when they kicke out Davis. Arnold did okay for a while, but he must realize by now that you can't make promises you can't keep in a state like California, let alone the whole USA. Those presidential candidates are in the same boat. Promises, promises. No one knows what the job entails until you stand in those shoes. Arnold is no big deal.

    Nothing proves you are a strong Republican better than being endorsed by one of the most Left learning Republican in the land.

    Arnold Schwarzenegger is now endorsing McCain. McCain claims to be conservative. Schwarzenegger is pro-choice, pro-gun control, and pro-gay rights, all of which are not traditional conservative positions. Therefore, shouldn't Schwarzenegger's endorsement be treated as a sign to conservative voters that they can't trust McCain?
