Dems Woo Bill Clinton To Oppose Arnold
Enticed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's plunging approval ratings,
California Democrats are courting some heavy hitters to run against him
next year - including Bill Clinton.
"We hear that major donors are reaching out to former President Clinton,
once governor of Arkansas, to run," Paul Bedard writes in his U.S. News &
World Report column, Washington Whispers.
A Democratic strategist quoted by Bedard says: "On first blush, it might
sound nuts. But he'd be governor of the fourth-largest economy in the
world and have the ability to raise hundreds of millions of dollars for
Hillary" if she ran for president.
Other potential candidates being considered include ex-Lakers star Magic
Johnson, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and activist actor Rob
Reiner, aka "Meathead" of "All in the Family" fame.
Says Bedard: "Imagine a 'Meathead vs. Terminator' race in 2006."
