Schwarzenegger Plans to Change the Constitution, Run for President

Much like Arnold Schwarzenegger’s acting career, the rumor that the Austrian-born former California governor is trying to change the law so he can run for president is back. “Schwarzenegger has been talking openly about working on getting the constitutional rules changed so he can run for president in 2016,” a source told Page Six. “He is ready to file legal paperwork to challenge the rules.” Considering that Ted Cruz was afraid of having even a whiff of Canadian about him, Congress probably won’t go for amending the Constitution just for Arnold. (So we’ll have to do this via constitutional convention.) It’s an exciting prospect, as Schwarzenegger will probably be the only presidential candidate to ever have this sentence written about them: “[He’s] openly talking about his political ambitions while in New York to promote his new movie with Sylvester Stallone.”
