Congrats Arnold
I am not yet convinced that Arnold is going to be a good governor, but it's hard to imagine that he could be any worse than Gray Davis. Since I don't live in California, I think it is an exciting story and I wish him the best. Here is a mostly positive article about the international reaction.

"Someone who's a foreigner in his country, who has an unpronounceable name and can become governor of the biggest American state — that's not nothing," [French Interior Minister Nicolas] Sarkozy told RTL radio.

In Japan, TV news gave the Hollywood star's victory top billing. "It's the American dream," said Hideya Sugio, the anchor of the evening news at TBS, a national network.

"If they ever change the Constitution, it would be for him," Bogen said. "And it would be proof that in America, everything is possible."
