Schwarzenegger says he's running for governor

Well, he's gone and done it. I thought he was going on The Tonight Show to tell people he wasn't running. But that's not what he did. The big question is: Will his star power and somewhat moderate politics be enough to legitimize the circus that the recall has become. And even if he does win can he do anything with the state in time for it to do Bush any good in the 2004 election cycle. Outsider candidates can sometimes be effective. I'm sure this isn't what Gray Davis wants but he has prepared well by raising more money than anyone else in California's history. And according to a report on NPR yesterday, all candidates to replace the governor will be under spending limits but the governor himself won't be because he's campaigning against the recall not running for office.
