Schwarzenegger Training for California Politics

NPR's Ina Jaffe reports the most appealing candidate in California is better known for his action packed movies than his political views. Although Arnold Schwarzenegger is not currently running for office, he is sponsoring an initiative for the November 5th ballot that could make after-school programs available to many students in the state. Some say Schwarzenegger is training for a chance to be governor in four years.
